A call to free journalists

According to Reporters Without Borders, 60 journalists were killed and 929 were physically attacked or threatened in 2008. That means five journalists were killed, on average, in a month - an alarming figure at any rate.

On May 3, members of Reporters Without Borders USA will start a hunger strike in New York to call for the release of Roxana Saberi, Euna Lee and Laura Ling.

And here's also hoping that the fluid situation in Sri Lanka would soon change for the better and that a lasting peaceful solution would be found, paving the way for the complete restoration of press freedom.
