CPJ expresses concern over blocking of news site by Sri Lanka

The Asia desk of the Committee to Protect Journalists Asia on Friday expressed concern over the blockage of the news website, Lanka-e-News, by the Sri Lankan authorities this week. 

"CPJ is concerned about reports that news site Lanka E News has been blocked in #SriLanka because of its critical reporting. This is a press freedom violation and access to the website should be restored immediately," CPJ Asia tweeted

The move came just a day after the website published a story detailed allegations of corruption by the president's office.
