One of world's longest-imprisoned journalists now placed in solitary confinement

Muhammad Bekjanov – an Uzbek journalist who tried to initiate debate on taboo subjects such as the use of forced labour in the cotton harvest – has been placed in solitary confinement. The journalist has been in prison for 17 years, and the move could be a sign that the government is preparing to extend his prison term yet again.
