Ivory Coast’s Gbagbo threatens international media - CTV News
The Associated Press reports:
"The Ivorian leader refusing to cede power has warned international journalists that they would be considered accomplices to terrorists if they don’t do a more balanced job of reporting the country’s political crisis.

Lynsey Addario: Before She Went Missing
From the Daily Beast:
The New York Times on Wednesday reported that four of its journalists working in Libya were missing, including Lynsey Addario, a prize-winning war photographer who has covered Afghanistan and the Middle East for more than a decade.
The American photographer, who travels nearly 300 days of the year for her work, was briefly kidnapped in 2004 while on assignment in Iraq. Participating remotely in a Daily Beast conference last week, she gave a moving telephone account of her working circumstances for a panel on Women on the Frontlines.
