New York Based International Committee on protection of Journalists (ICJP) has in its annual report criticized restraints imposed on press freedom in Yemen of some Arab States. The report stressed that there are legal harassment, arrests and intimidation practiced against journalists in those countries.
The committee has further said Arab governments use certain means for curbing press freedoms, including running and censoring information media, indicating that press in Yemen, Morocco, Kuwait, Algeria and Lebanon enjoys a degree of freedom.
