In the past, donors and groups providing security to
journalists in less-developed nations tended to export a Western,
military-style of training designed for a war-time environment. But the danger of
covering combat is one thing. Being fired upon by a motorcycle-riding assassin
is another--as is being sexually
molested in a crowd, discovering a video camera in one's bedroom, or having
one's phone calls intercepted. And then there is emotional toll of losing
dear colleagues, and wondering whether you or your family will be next.
