People’s tribunal for murder of journalists opens at The Hague

In the past 30 years, at least 1,400 journalists have been killed. Yet most of those responsible for their deaths have faced no accountability.
A collective of advocacy groups has come together in The Hague to raise awareness of the issue, but will it be enough to turn this around?
