Why Eritrea bans private media | 12 March 2015

For the first time in more than a decade, a BBC News crew has been allowed into Eritrea.

The country is seen as one of the world's most secretive and repressive states.

One of the many criticisms aimed at Eritrea is its poor levels of press freedom.

Yalda Hakim reports from the capital, Asmara.
