I had just shared an article I'd written about the terrorist group recruiting Western fighters on my Twitter when I saw that someone using the Twitter handle Abu Omar had also posted a link to the piece on his own account.

Protecting Journalists Covering Conflict


It's dangerous being a reporter, and freelancers and local journalists are particularly vulnerable, which is why CPJ is a founding member of the ACOS Alliance, which stands for 'A Culture of Safety' and promotes the Freelance Journalist Safety Principles. News organizations and press groups have signed up to a list of principles designed to improve safety and help journalists and news organizations talk about safety with each other. Although there is no such thing as foolproof security, there are basic steps that news organizations and individual journalists can take to understand risk and improve their chances of protecting themselves and their sources. The videotaped beheadings of journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff spurred us all to do more. This page will guide both new and seasoned journalists to resources for improving physical and digital security.

Demanding justice and security for journalists in Mexico

CPJ staff were shocked and saddened by the murder of photographer Rubén Espinosa, who was found dead in an apartment in Mexico City along with four women. The victims were shot in the head. Espinosa had fled the state of Veracruz in June and sought refuge in Mexico City, where he thought he would be safe. CPJ condemned the murder and called on authorities to mount a thorough investigation. "It is time for federal and local authorities to take action to combat the serious press freedom crisis facing Mexico," said Carlos Lauría, senior program coordinator for the Americas.
