Cambodia jumped to 85th from 108th in the Worldwide Press Freedom Index measuring

the level of press freedom in 169 countries. The October 16 index from Reporters

Without Borders pointed to the Cambodian government's decision to decriminalize press

offenses, adding that while no journalist was imprisoned this year in Cambodia, some

journalists received death threats, especially when covering corruption. Eritrea

took over last place from North Korea. Iceland and Norway tied for first. The report

noted the importance of the internet as a site for both free press and violations

to free press.
