Justice for Journalists Killed in Iraq: a Message of Solidarity from Uganda

Statement from the Uganda Journalists Union

The Uganda Journalists Union supports all efforts geared towards investigating properly the deaths of journalists who were covering the war in Iraq. We believe the United States owes the world Journalism fraternity an explanation and needs to clarify why the US deliberately ignored calls for the investigations.

The journalism fraternity cannot afford to keep adamant when "Super Powers" like the US can cause terrorism and bloodshed on the media under the pretext of fighting terrorism.

Proper investigation should be carried out and condemn those behind it.

The struggle continues.
