More action needed to protect journalists in crisis zones

OSCE press freedom advocate, Dunja Mijatovic, during a press conference in Budapest on January 18, 2011More must be done to protect journalists in crisis zones like Ukraine, the OSCE has warned, following the deaths of two more reporters in the country’s east. In an interview with AFP, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s press freedom advocate, Dunja Mijatovic, said that rights groups were slow to react at the start of the crisis, before mass protests toppled President Viktor Yanukovych’s government. “Now the situation is different but if you look at when the crisis started in December with these first attacks on (the) Maidan (square) on more than 40 journalists, we were quite lonely in that period.” “It’s killing the cause because a joint voice coming from international organisations could help,” she said on Tuesday, ahead of the publication Thursday of her biannual report taking stock of the media freedom situation in Europe, North America and central Asia.
