"Journalists urge Maliki to stop limiting the media."

The Committee to Protect Journalists “has issued an open letter to Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki urging the government to reverse the recently imposed ban on journalists at the site of bombing attacks.” The letter notes, “Journalists in Iraq believe the ban is intended to limit their coverage to information that is filtered through the Interior Ministry, obstructing their ability to report independently.”
