After airing a piece critical of the Pakistani military, senior journalists Najam Sethi and Hamid Mir received serious threats from what they described as "both non-state and state actors." Pakistan was the most dangerous country for journalists in 2011 and the CPJ is working to keep these journalists safe by publishing these threats, bringing them into the public eye and making certain that those who wish to do harm know that their actions will not go unnoticed.
