Retrieved September 16, 2006, Via organization web site. 5 pages., Notes that since February 1,"reporting from rural and remote areas of the country has become even more dangerous. Reporters are risking their lives, without having proper security and insurance for their lives. Dozens of journalists have been picked up by the security forces and interrogated.
