No let up in attacks against Sierra Leone’s Journalists

With political tensions rising in the run up to the polls, the environment is getting more hostile for Journalists.
The Sierra Leone Association of Journalists, SLAJ, has expressed concern that Journalists in the country continue to come under attack, especially from the state police and politicians.
