Reuters won a Pulitzer Prize on Monday for international reporting on the violent persecution of a Muslim minority in Myanmar, the Pulitzer Prize Board at Columbia University announced.
The board commended Jason Szep and Andrew Marshall of Reuters for their “courageous reports” on the Rohingya, who in their efforts to flee the Southeast Asian country, often fall victim to predatory human-trafficking networks.
In a message to staff, Reuters Editor-in-Chief Steve Adler said: "For two years, these Reuters reporters tirelessly investigated terrible human-rights abuses in a forgotten corner of the Muslim world, bringing the international dimensions of the Rohingya to global attention. As a result of their work, more than 900 people were freed from brutal trafficking rings. Awarding the prize to Reuters in the International Reporting category, the Pulitzer committee recognized the team for “their courageous reports on the violent persecution of the Rohingya, a Muslim minority in Myanmar that, in efforts to flee the country, often falls victim to predatory human-trafficking networks.” - Reuters
