Journalists are increasingly prevented from covering the migration crisis by being barred from anti-migration rallies and refugee camps, CPJ says

As the migration crisis has become one of the most important stories in Europe, the Committee to Protect Journalists says that journalists are increasingly being prevented from covering the story. Journalists have been banned by some European governments from entering refugee camps or transit centers, as well as ordered away from such areas by police. A report released in January by the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom listed 49 attacks against the press in 2015 in Germany, many of which occurred during anti-migration rallies.
