Eritrea, part of the coalition

BBC: Eritrea pressed over journalists

'RSF says that on 18 September 2001 the authorities closed all privately-owned newspapers and then detained the journalists.

"Journalists are still detained in undisclosed locations by the authorities. They have not been brought to trial and no official reason has been given for their arrest," RSF said in a statement.'

Eritrea is one of the initial 30 countries that the U.S. touted as being a part of the coalition of the willing. I wonder what their state-run media (the only media in Eritrea, apparently) is telling the public about this war.
