The World

A survey of press freedom in Latin America cited overall improvement in the last year but said "journalism remains an extremely hazardous activity," particularly in Chile and Paraguay, which it labeled the region's "nightmare countries." Guatemala, El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras and Guyana also were cited as hazardous to journalists. The survey, compiled jointly by the Newspaper Guild and the Council on Hemispheric Affairs, praised Argentina, which recently ended seven years of military rule, Barbados, Belize, Brazil and Trinidad and Tobago as having the best records for respecting press freedom.
