COMMITTEE TO PROTECT JOURNALISTS LAUNCHES ARABIC WEBSITE: http://cpj.org/ar

Last week the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) launched the Arabic version of its website, featuring translated content from CPJ's Middle East and North Africa programme. Arabic-speaking journalists and media professionals can now access CPJ's alerts, statements and special reports about their region, including the full MENA chapter from CPJ's 2009 annual publication "Attacks on the Press".

"The release of an Arabic site on cpj.org is a testament to our dedication to coverage of the Middle East region," said CPJ.

The website includes a recent appeal to the King of Bahrain expressing concern at the blocking of critical websites and blogs run by human rights activists, including IFEX members the Bahrain Center for Human Rights and the Arabic Network for Human Rights Information.
