Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jamal Amer is a journalist from Yemen. He is the editor of the weekly journal Al-Wasat, which he founded in 2004. Al-Wasat frequently publishes reports critical of the government from international human rights organizations. Prior to 2004, Amer worked as a journalist for the weekly Al-Wahdawi. His reporting resulted in convictions for "harming the public interest," "offending King Fahd of Saudi Arabia," and "damaging relations between Saudi Arabia and Yemen." He was once banned by a court from working as a journalist. Amer was abducted in 2005 by four men thought to be government agents. They held him for six hours. The kidnappers beat him, blindfolded him, drove him to the top of a mountain, and threatened to kill him. Amer was awarded a 2006 CPJ International Press Freedom Award by the Committee to Protect Journalists.
