U.S. State Department criticized over quiet release of human rights reportBy Yeganeh Torbati WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. State Department released its annual report on human rights around the world on Friday but the release was overshadowed by criticism that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson gave the report little of the traditional attention or fanfare. Tillerson declined to unveil the report in person, breaking with precedent established during both Democratic and Republican administrations. “The report speaks for itself,” the official said in response to a question about why Tillerson did not unveil it.
