NEW YORK — For the second consecutive year, Turkey jailed more journalists than any other country, with Iran and China close behind in an annual report released Wednesday by the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists.
‘‘Jailing journalists for their work is the hallmark of an intolerant, repressive society,’’ CPJ Executive Director Joel Simon said in a statement accompanying the report.
The CPJ found 211 journalists were behind bars in a snapshot survey taken on Dec. 1. The report noted the figure does not include many journalists who were imprisoned and released throughout the year. The CPJ said this was the second highest number of journalists jailed in its survey, topped only by the 232 in 2012. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
