Journalist in conflictgebied

Situation in Afghanistan

Afghanistan is a particularly dangerous country for journalists. Reuters reported that at least 30 journalists and media workers have been killed, injured or kidnapped in 2021 already. With the recent advance of the Taliban, we are deeply concerned about the safety of correspondents, media personnel and fixers in Afghanistan. In particular, Afghans who have collaborated with Western parties are targeted. In this dossier you find more information about our work in this regard.
