NEW YORK: The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said Tuesday that government officials’ condemnation of an attack on a Geo TV van in Karachi will ring hollow unless the perpetrators of this crime were brought to justice.
Bob Dietz, CPJ's Asia program coordinator said police must clearly establish a motive for the attack. "If the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is ever going to establish its credibility as a protector of journalists, now is the time."
A Geo TV technician was killed and a driver injured in the shooting. Arshad Ali Jaffery, a technician, was shot seven times in the attack, and the driver was shot twice in the shoulder but managed to drive to a hospital, police told local media. Two other Geo media workers near the van escaped injury. – Committee to Protect Journalists
