Kuwait is top on the list of Arab countries which have press freedom, while Qatar ranks next, says a report released by a major regional human rights studies institution. But the interference of a newspaper owner in the content of media material is found to be the highest in Qatar among all the Arab countries which the report focuses on. Qatar is assigned 30 percentage points on a scale of 100 in this regard whereas Lebanon and Egypt are given 20 points each. Jordan, Iraq and Kuwait are at the bottom of the list with 10 points each.
