23 in 23: Mohammad Ismail

BY ALICE PURKISS

Islamabad Bureau Chief, Pakistan Press International – Islamabad, Pakistan – 1 November 2006

Join us in demanding justice for Mohammad Ismail, last seen on 31 October 2006 when he left his home to go for an evening walk. He was found the next morning near his home, with his skull smashed in. He was carrying little of value when he was assaulted, and his agency was not known for particularly critical reporting of the government. According to the Pakistan Press Foundation, at least 32 journalists have been killed in the country for their work since 2002.

 

Take action and send a letter to the authorities demanding an immediate and open investigation into this case here

International Day to End Impunity is on 23 November. Until that date,  we will reveal a story each day of a journalist, writer or free expression advocate who was killed in the line of duty.
