CPJ in the Philippines

Bob Dietz, CPJ’s Asia program coordinator currently on a CPJ mission to the Philippines, writes in The Huffington Post about the Maguindanao massacre.

On November 23, 2009, 32 journalists and media workers were killed in the single deadliest event for the press since 1992, when CPJ began keeping detailed records on journalist deaths. Now, nine months later, the opening trial date for 17 men accused of these murders and other crimes has been set for September 1.
