  1. There should be safety measures besides more professional training of the journalists especially war and conflict reporting safety tools should be taken care of in my opinion.

    • You are right, Shabbir. Unfortunately there are fewer training opportunities available for journalists locally. This and many other aspects should also be part of curriculum being offered at out universities and colleges for journalism related programs.
