Bahrain added to list of "Enemies of the Internet

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Joining usual suspects like China and North Korea among the so-called Enemies of the Internet, Bahrain and Belarus have joined a list of 12 countries, which the international press freedom advocate, Reporters Without Borders (RSF), says are guilty of cyber censorship and restricting the freedom of information.


 To mark this year's World Day Against Cyber Censorship (March 12), RSF has released its latest report on the world’s worst offenders of Internet censorship.


 The "Enemies of the Internet" list also includes Saudi Arabia.


 RSF says Bahrain and Belarus were added to the list after the organization found those countries to have increased efforts to restrict the flow of information.
