Britain said it had barred Russia's RT and Sputnik-news-organisations from a global-conference on media-freedom in London because of their "active role in spreading disinformation". Some 60-ministers and 1,000 journalists and members of civil-society are expected to attend the meeting on Wednesday and Thursday co-hosted with Canada. In a statement, it said RT had been told there was no-space for its journalists at the conference.
