Watchdog Condemns Attack on Media Freedom in Angola

Angolan police should stop arresting and assaulting journalists and allow them to do their jobs freely, the Committee to Protect Journalists has said. This comes after at least six journalists and one media worker were arrested - with four held for more than two days - and another was harassed while covering anti-government protests by civil society groups and opposition parties in the capital, Luanda, according to reports.
