Summary Box: Group names enemies of Internet

Summary Box: Reporters Without Borders names Bahrain 'enemy of Internet'

Associated Press

THE LIST: Reporters Without Borders issues an annual report that classifies as "enemies" countries that severely curtail freedom of expression on and access to the Web. It also draws up a list of states "under surveillance."

NEW TO THE LIST: The group added Bahrain, citing a news blackout and harassment of bloggers in an attempt to quell a yearlong Shiite-led rebellion against the Sunni monarchy.

REMOVED: Libya, where the repressive rule of Moammar Gadhafi was thrown off in a violent revolt, was removed from the list of countries under surveillance.
