Yet Another Statement by HRW

This is getting a bit monotonous frankly. But what interested me particularly is this little snippet:

"...government censors ripped out two recent articles in the The Economist on protests and Bangladeshi politics before the magazine could be distributed. Bangladeshi editors and journalists have told Human Rights Watch that self-censorship has become common."

I don't know what the two articles are. I assume one of them is this one. I would greatly appreciate anyone who has information as to what the other one was.

Full statement.

Update: As the author of this blog confirms, the two "ripped" articles were from different issues of the magazine. The other article was most likely this one.

Update 2: And just so we don't forget, this isn't the first time this government has done this.
