Newspapers forced into silence

Published måndag 12 februari 2007 kl 11.18

Editors and journalists at almost half of all daily newspapers in Sweden have been threatened over the past year, according to a new survey.

Most of the threats of violence or damage to property are made via telephone or email, and crime reporters are the most often targeted.

The study, carried out by the Mid Sweden University, in the city of Sundsvall, looked at 130 newspapers and found that in some cases the threats led to sensitive stories being dropped.

The perpetrators are said to be mostly disturbed people, criminal gangs and extremist groups.
