The theme of this year’s World Press Freedom Day (3 May) is “The Olympic challenge: free the press in China”, aimed at holding Chinese authorities to the pledges they made in their successful Olympic bid to allow greater press freedom. With at least 30 journalists and 50 cyber dissidents in prison, China is the world’s largest jailer of journalists, says the World Association of Newspapers. Here are some cartoons by noted French cartoonist Michel Cambon drawn exclusively for the association.
