Every week, a journalist somewhere is killed or assaulted for simply doing their job.

This extraordinary editorial by the murdered editor of the Sri Lankan Sunday Leader was apparently written just a few days before his death.

May these brave souls continue their work. May I one day be able again to help defend them through working, as I have in the past, on press freedom issues with the International Federation of Journalists. (Download the 2007-8 report on press freedom in South-Asia -- I helped copy-edit the 2005-6 version.)
