22 journalists killed in four years in Balochistan
Islamabad: As many as 22 journalists have been killed in Pakistan`s Balochistan province in the last four years, a media report said Monday.
Participants at a workshop on Media and Civil Society in Balochistan, held in Quetta Sunday, said that said the media in Balochistan was not free and journalists on professional duty often faced harassment, reported Dawn.
According to figures presented at the workshop, at least 22 journalists have been killed in the province during the past four years.
Centre for Research and Security Studies executive director Imtiaz Gul said journalists faced challenges and difficulties in reporting.
The entire province has become a battleground, said Quetta Press Club general secretary Abdul Khaliq Rind.
"You cannot look at media`s work in isolation. You cannot write about any group. It is very difficult for all of us," he was quoted as saying.
