Four other persons have reportedly been taken into custody in connection with the case. Sangi worked for the privately-owned Kawish Television Network (KTN).Several local officials have also been suspended for alleged misconduct in connection with the investigation, including a Larkana district police officer and the forensic doctor who carried out the first autopsy, Akhtar Hussain, who apparently falsified his report to hide the fact that Sangi was shot. At the family’s request his body was exhumed for a second autopsy that confirmed that his death was the result of a gunshot injury.———————– News News Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder TV cameraman fatally shot in Sindh to go further Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfirecenter_img 31.05.2006 News Reporters Without Borders voiced regret today at the fatal shooting of cameraman Munir Sangi on 29 May in Larkana, in the southeastern province of Sindh.

Aroused by a noise, Koum alerted neighbours and thereby managed to scare the intruders away. Three weeks before that, on the night of 1 September, several gunmen broke into his home and took a briefcase containing work documents and personal items. Following this incident, Reporters Without Borders wrote to national security chief Emmanuel Edou asking him to ensure that the safety of Koum and his family was guaranteed.Someone meanwhile hacked into Koum’s email account and that of his newspaper ([email protected]) on 27 September. “My password was changed without my knowledge, with the result that I can no longer access my email,” he said. A spam message in English has been sent several times to all his contacts. His two telephones are also being tapped, Reporters Without Borders has been told by several different local sources.Listen to Koum describing (in French) what happened on 1st September: News CameroonAfrica last_img read more

At least seven journalists injured at protest about 43 missing students

Journalists working for Mexican and international media demonstrated outside the headquarters of the state government in Chilpancingo on 12 November to demand an end to the attacks on media personnel.Violence against journalists while they are working is all the more disturbing because, according to the National Commission for Human Rights, 89 percent of the attacks on media personnel go unpunished.“We urge the federal and Guerrero state authorities to firmly condemn these attacks on journalists,” said Claire San Filippo, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “Police and protesters must respect the right of journalists to cover demonstrations. A UN resolution in March stressed the need for the authorities to take great care to protect reporters during protests.”The disappearance of 43 students from a teachers training college in Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, has been the subject of constant protests throughout Mexico since 26 September.The reported confessions of alleged gang members reinforced the suspicion that they were murdered by members of a drug-trafficking gang with the collusion of local officials and police, and has intensified against the widespread anger about violence, political complicity with organized crime and the generalized impunity.Mexico is ranked 152nd out of 180 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
