AAJA mourns the death of more than two dozen journalists killed in the massacre in the Philippines.
The attack of an election convoy in the province of Maguindanao appears to be the single deadliest event for the press since 1992. The total death toll rose above 50.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the slain,” said AAJA National President Sharon Chan. “AAJA stands with journalists who risk their lives each day to shine a light into distant corners of the world.”
