Issues faced by journalists in Pakistan, particularly in conflict situations, is the subject of a report released by Media Commission-Pakistan (MC-P) in collaboration with South Asian Free Media Association (Safma) at the Safma Centre on Friday.

The report was prepared after deliberations with journalists and civil society representatives in the four provinces.

The MCP and Safma organised a set of activities from October to December 2011 across Pakistan to discover what has earned it the tag of being the most dangerous country in the world for journalism.

According to the report, reporting has become harder and more dangerous than ever.

The report includes notes on a conference that took place on October 15 in Islamabad. In addition to providing information on the conferences, the report serves as a guidebook for journalists and includes regulations, norms and realities of the profession.
