We hope this will help to reduce the number of abuses against journalists in Libya, which is still very high.” According to the tally kept by RSF and the LCFP, two journalists have been killed, eight journalists have been physically attacked and two media outlets have been ransacked by state or non-state actors so far this year in Libya. Crimes of violence against journalists usually go unpunished. In a recent press release, RSF urged Libyan journalists to take personal responsibility for their own safety by paying heed to the recommendations in the Safety Guide for JournalistsSafety Guide for Journalists, which RSF and UNESCO updated last December. Created in 2014, theLibyan Centre for Freedom of Press is based in Tripoli. It produces quarterly and annual reports on media freedom violations, organizes campaigns aimed at increasing awareness of the right to provide news and information, and lobbies the Libyan authorities. The French Development Agency (AFD) is supporting the activities designed to improve safety for Libyan journalists. Libya is ranked 164th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

first_img Statement Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement:“Today is a sad day for the commonwealth and the people of Pennsylvania. Attorney General Kane has been convicted of serious charges. These are unbecoming of the commonwealth’s top law enforcement officer.“As I have made clear, I do not believe Kathleen Kane should be Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. I believed this when she was charged, and today, after conviction, there should be no question that she should resign immediately.“While there is no simple procedure to remove a civil officer, the Office of Attorney General and its employees, as well as the people of Pennsylvania, deserve to move on. I implore Attorney General Kane to do what is right: put the commonwealth’s residents first and step down from office.” August 15, 2016 Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf Governor Wolf Statement on Attorney General Kanecenter_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter   SHARE  TWEETlast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 9, 2017 at 9:42 pm After winning two straight Atlantic Coast Conference games at home, Syracuse (10-6, 2-1 ACC) heads back on the road to take on Virginia Tech (12-3, 1-2). The Orange lost its only previous road game in conference play, an 96-81 beatdown against Boston College. Virginia Tech is coming off a 93-78 loss at Florida State on Saturday.Here’s what our beat writers think will happen on Tuesday night.Connor Grossman (8-8)Buzz cutVirginia Tech 72, Syracuse 70After barely edging North Florida on Dec. 3, Jim Boeheim said he’d play only five guys if that’s what he had to do. It took him about a month to reach that point, but it’s here. SU is essentially down to a rotation of six. It’s worked thus far, but I’m not willing to believe (yet) that Syracuse has suddenly deviated from the dysfunction that plagued it throughout the nonconference slate. Virginia Tech is truly a team with depth — five players averaging 10 or more points, six players averaging 20-plus minutes — and the Hokies are going to engage SU in a close match on Tuesday. It’s going to leave the Orange still seeking that elusive road win.Matt Schneidman (9-7)Buzz killSyracuse 71, Virginia Tech 60AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Hokies are desperate for a conference win after losing two straight following a double-digit win against Duke while Grayson Allen served his one-game suspension. But this Syracuse team is clicking on both ends of the court, and the Orange is finding other avenues of offense aside from Andrew White and Tyler Lydon. That spells doom for Virginia Tech, a team that has allowed an average of 98.5 points per game in the last two contests. And oh, Boeheim has his team playing some pretty decent defense these days, too.Paul Schwedelson (10-6)To infinity and beyondSyracuse 76, Virginia Tech 72Syracuse is playing its best basketball of the season and the team most people envisioned at the start of the season (albeit with a much smaller rotation) is beginning to emerge. The Orange needs to steal a road win before traveling to take on North Carolina and Notre Dame next week. A win in Blacksburg is much more likely that against those other two teams. Buzz Williams’ Hokies are reeling after two losses by a combined 41 points. It’s a perfect storm for SU and the Orange must blast off while it has the chance.center_img Commentslast_img read more
