Yesterday’s attack on far right Lebanese journalist May Chidiac has been condemned by Syria’s Journalist Union.
They’ve called the bombing a “a crime that targets journalists’ pens and freedoms”. They wished her a quick recovery.
It is a policy of the Syria News Wire not to advocate – but in the case of the protection of journalists, and journalism itself, this website stands against all attacks on journalists, whether they be in Beirut or Baghdad.
On this day, Syrian born Al-Jazeera journalist Taysir Alouni was sentenced to 7 years in jail by a Spanish court. He is accused of “collaborating with al-Qaida,” based on his interview with Bin Laden in 2001.
