November 8, 2008 4:20 PM ET

We issued the following statement after learning of the release today of abducted CBC correspondent Mellissa Fung in Kabul...

"Mellissa's freedom is a great relief, of course. But her abduction is only one incident in what has become a pattern of kidnappings and attacks not only on foreign reporters and aid workers, but Afghan jounrnalists as well. The disintegrating security situation in Kabul and the rest of Afghanistan is already changing the way news is gathered in this important global story," said Bob Dietz, CPJ's Asia program coordinator.
