Risks of Reporting – in Afghanistan, Rwanda, Mexico
Every year journalists are killed in the line of duty. At home or venturing into war zones and areas of conflict. Sometimes they end up in jail, detained for years on end, or exiled from their countries, forced into hiding. Some go missing, disappear.
In this episode of International Reporters Roundtable we explore what it means to be a journalist on the frontlines. Our guests personally know the reality of reporters being hunted, what it is to face life and death, yet persist in the work of telling the truth.
Nazira Karimi, Anjan Sundaram and Armando Guzman join us to discuss their experiences and those of their colleagues in Afghanistan, Rwanda and Mexico, the pressures and perils of this essential calling, and shed light on the source of their dedication.
