The murder of Radio France Internationale journalists Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon on the outskirts of Kidal, a town in the Ifoghas massif, on 2 November has highlighted the extent of the threats to freedom of information in this part of northern Mali.
Their double murder follows a decline in security in the far north of the country, which – despite France’s Operation Serval and the deployment of a UN peacekeeping mission, MINUSMA – has still not been brought under the Malian government’s control.
Early July, the TSF team conducted an assessment mission among Malian refugees in the Ferrerio camp, north Gorom-Gorom, which shelters more than 25,000 people. This evaluation mission will allow the beginning of humanitarian calling operations in August.
The operations will begin upon reception of the agreement from the National Committee for Refugees (CONAREF).
Amid continuing political instability following a rebel takeover in the north and a military coup in the capital in March, Reporters Without Borders has compiled the following summary of media freedom violations in Mali during the past three weeks.
Reporters Without Borders condemns the occupation of the headquarters of the state radio and TV broadcaster ORTM by renegade soldiers since yesterday and the interruption of broadcasting by many other radio and TV stations as a result of an apparent military coup against President Amadou Toumani Touré.
