New measures considered to protect journalists in Mexico

Mexico's National Human Rights Commission intends to establish an area within the organization dedicated to following step-by-step each case of aggression against journalists, reports the newspaper El Universal.

The goal is to fight impunity and guarantee justice for journalists who have been attacked, threatened or intimidated in the course of doing their job.

Meanwhile, in the state of Coahuila, a bill has been proposed that would protect journalists from having to reveal their sources and strengthen freedom of expression, according to Milenio.
