ABSTRACT
The article reports on the perils of reporting on the war in Croatia. It recounts the experience of Spanish reporter Hermann Tertsch who with a half dozen colleagues were absconded by Serbian irregular troops, lined up against a wall and threatened to be executed. Seventeen journalists have died in Yugoslavia. Some journalists over mark their vehicle with press and television. Others travel in vehicles with no markings at all. Still, there is no lack of reporters willing to cover the war.
