#EndImpunity

These days a number of senior journalists in Pakistan, including some editors, travel only in armour-plated bulletproof vehicles. In some cases they have armed security escorts. A couple of them have survived assassination attempts. They, along with the others, continue to receive death threats from various quarters, mainly Islamists or ethnic militant groups.

The United Nations has designated the 2nd November as the ‘International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists’. It is important for an industry usually averse to introspection to acknowledge the deaths of journalists who have died in pursuit of the news that feeds our work. Recent atrocities have catapulted the deaths of two American journalists in particular onto front pages worldwide, yet the murders of James Foley and Steven Sotloff – however horrendous - remain just two of 40 deaths so far this year.
