Crisis in East Africa

Fifty-seven journalists fled their country in the past year, with Somalia sending the
greatest number into exile. Journalists also fled Ethiopia, Eritrea, and
Rwanda–mostly for Kenya and Uganda. Exiles in East Africa must grapple with
poverty and fear. A CPJ special report by María Salazar-Ferro and Tom Rhodes
