Islamabad, April 22, 2014 (PPI-OT): On Wednesday 30 April 2014, Amnesty International will launch a major new report on attacks on journalists in Pakistan.

The report is based on interviews with more than 70 journalists and documents a range of recent cases where media workers have come under attack.
