Journalists in Syria: observers, actors or targets?

What has happened to the three journalists thought to be still trapped in the Syrian city of Homs? British photographer Paul Conroy was evacuated last night in an operation that left a dozen or more people dead but what about Edith Bouvier, William Daniels and Javier Espinosa? Laura Baines and her panel discuss whether Syria has become too dangerous for foreign journalists, or if their profession demands they keep on reporting the facts whatever the risks.

  • Robert MAHONEY, Deputy Director, Committee to Protect Journalists;
  • Luis PERAL, Senior Fellow, European Union Institute for Security Studies;
  • Catherine NORRIS-TRENT, France 24 reporter.

    Watch the second part.
