Bangladesh - Annual report 2008

Reporters Without Borders or RSF (French: Reporters sans frontières) is a Paris-based international non-governmental organization that advocates freedom of the press. Their World Press Freedom Index is widely accepted.

RSF has published its annual report on Bangladesh for 2008 and it isn't pretty:
