Australia's leading newspapers and internet portals self-censored their publications Monday to protest laws that mandate prison sentences for journalists and informants for revealing secret documents.

The front pages of newspapers such as The Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian, Financial Review, The Daily Telegraph, among others, were printed with large sections appearing to have been censored with black ink, bearing a red seal with "secret, not to be disclosed" written on it. EFE-EPA
