S Sudan denies stifling free speech over media closures

Reporters say they are worried about being able to report freely, after security forces shut down three media outlets.

    Journalists in South Sudan say they are worried about their ability to report freely, after security forces shut down three media outlets last week.

    In February, the government warned media groups against publishing interviews with members armed groups or face harsh punishment.
