Via YouTube, the Inter American Press Association (IAPA) has released a series of videos about the impact of violence and the risks journalists confront in the so-called "triple frontier" region between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.

The series includes six interviews in Portuguese and Spanish by Brazilian Clarinha Glock (of IAPA's Rapid Response Unit) with reporters who cover this border zone, where “abound goods and weapons smuggling, and drug trafficking, crimes worsened by the high degree of corruption, impunity and lack of justice."
