Alarm bracelet built to protect activists

Swedish group develops personal alarm system for journalists and rights activists working in dangerous areas.

    The killing of a Russian journalist has inspired a Swedish human rights group to develop a personal alarm system for activists in danger.

    The group hopes the bracelet, designed to endure an assault and send a distress signal by the wearer or if removed by force, will help protect those working in high-risk areas.

    Al Jazeera's Linda Nyberg reports from Stockholm.
