December 2005
Nieman Reports;Winter2005, Vol. 59 Issue 4, p124
The article presents the Pakistan Press Foundation's preliminary assessment of the losses caused by the Pakistan earthquake on October 8, 2005 and the needs of journalists and media organizations designated at the affected areas in Pakistan. Many journalists and other staff members of media organizations suffered devastating losses because of the earthquake. Most of the losses to media personnel and organizations occurred in Muzaffarabad. In this city alone, ten media personnel were killed and 11 were injured. The vital role of the media should prompt the government to prioritize the rehabilitation of media.
