Sri Lanka Bans NGOs from Media Contacts, Training

Enter this in the hard-to-believe category: the government of Sri Lanka just issued an order banning NGOs from working with the media. Any media. Included on the list of restricted activity: "conducting press conferences, workshops, journalism training and dissemination of press releases." Goons have already disrupted training workshops for journalists on the island.
