Sri Lanka: Journalists fear a new media crackdown

Some journalists in Sri Lanka say they fear intimidation from the new government.

Journalists in Sri Lanka are concerned that they may be facing a new wave of harassment.

Some members of the media have allegedly been subjected to intimidation since Gotabaya Rajapaksa took office last month.

While members of the press say this has not been explicitly stated, they feel they have been put on alert.
