Journalists in Afghanistan work under extremely difficult circumstances and routinely face violence, threats, and intimidation that prevent them from carrying out their work. While many incidents go unreported, Internews partner Nai Supporting Afghanistan Open Media has collected hundreds of reports of such incidents. The map above represents ten years of data on violence against journalists in Afghanistan gathered by Nai's MediaWatch team.
