We are deeply concerned about stories emerging this week from Egypt about beatings, detention and harassment of journalists, including our colleagues.
The events underscore how dangerous our work can be and yet how vitally important it is in order to let the world know what is going at times like these.
We are united in calling for an end to the targeting of journalists so that they can be safe and continue to cover this important story.
