Investigating the deaths of journalists

Seven journalists were killed in India in 2008. There must be 700 who were intimidated in some fashion or the other. As an example, see my recent blog post on the fragile institutional foundations of free speech in India. Here is an inspiring story, from the US, about peers embarking on an investigation into the murder of a journalist. It is by Tim Arango, and was published in The New York Times.
