As the Angolan Civil War dragged on in the 1990s, @voaportuges journalist Ricardo de Mello covered the war extensively for the network.

Despite many threats, de Mello maintained his commitment to the stories audiences needed to know. Retaliation over his coverage of high-level corruption and the Angolan government's war effort ultimately led to the journalist's death. We honor his life and his work, and they remind us of the dangers journalists around the world continue to face.

We honor his life, a reminder of the dangers journalists around the world have and continue to face.

Almigdad Mojalli was a seasoned journalist that had been working for VOA for a few months.

He was mortally wounded during Saudi-led coalition airstrikes on January 17, 2016 w while filming the aftermath of a previous air raid.

Mojalli was no stranger to coverage of airstrikes. He took this photo of a neighborhood in Yemen on October 9, 2015, while on assignment for VOA.

Despite an ongoing string of threats throughout his career, he continued to pursue the stories audiences needed.

We honor his life and legacy.

Ten years ago today, VOA Deewa lost its reporter Mukarram Khan Aatif.

Aatif had received repeated threats from militants in Afghanistan. On the evening of January 17, 2012, he was taking part in prayers at a local mosque when two masked men rode up on motorcycles and shot him in the head. Aatif died of his wounds after being taken to a hospital in the city of Peshawar.

The Taliban claimed responsibility.

USAGM joins VOA in remembering Aatif's dedication to press freedom.

Caught On Video: Ukrainian Bank Tries To Delete Recording After Assault On RFE/RL Journalists

Journalists around the world are routinely harassed and threatened while doing their job. Unfortunately, that harassment isn't always documented for the world to see. Earlier this month, two RFE/RL journalists were attacked while interviewing the chairman of the state-owned Ukreximbank. Bank employees used physical force against an RFE/RL cameraman Oleksandr Mazur, seizing two video cameras from him and erasing the recorded contents of the cameras' SD cards.

RFE/RL technicians were later able to recover the video, which was then posted online and sparked a major scandal, forcing the chairman to temporarily resign his post until a criminal investigation by Ukraine's National Police can be completed.

The clip below is the video recovered by RFE/RL's technicians.

After VOA profiled the creations of electronic items using scraps of metal, eleventh-grader Abdulkadir Hussein received a scholarship from a private school in Dodola in the Oromia region of Ethiopia.

The head of the Langano Secondary School contacted the young boy and offered him the opportunity after coming across his story on Afan Oromo’s page. His recent creations include an audio FM transmitter and an electric transformer that could magnify currents from solar panels and, if increased in size, can be used to provide light for people in rural areas.

Sonam Lama July 9th 2020 Dear Micheal Pack, Thank you for working so hard to clean up the organization Radio Free Asia, specifically the Tibetan portion. Over the years this organization has become the dictator messenger for the Middle Way Path which does not allow for true free speech and fair press. Anyone who supports the “Free Tibet Movement” has been silenced and shut down. Also anyone who supports religious freedom has not been given their fair chance to speak out. Instead Radio Free Asia has demonized people who disagree with the policy of The 14th Dalai Lama's Middle Way Path and supports the segregation among Tibetan people and now Tibetan unity has been completely destroyed. This is also a waste of American tax payers dollars. The people who are currently running the organization (Kaldem Lodoe, director of Tibetan service, Palden Gyal, the deputy director) lack the proper education to do so. They have never demonstrated an understanding of the meaning of free press or democracy. They were hired by Libby Lui with no qualifications for the job. I trust with this regime change the organization will be making better decisions, support the Freedom of all Tibetans and not waste taxpayers money. Perhaps you will consider rehiring Jigme Ngapo. Sincerely Yours, Sonam Lama
Charles E. Schaefer 3 hrs · 9news.com · This is the D.A for 22 District Courts in Northeast, Colorado. Brittny Lewton doesn't feel your pain, because she's been indicted for abusing painkillers.. However, her attorney, Boulder D.A. (Dewey, Cheatem and Howe) says conduct, should not count...ethics are for other people, and behavior doesn't matter. This woman is STILL the D.A.! The only way she can be removed is impeachment, if she loses her license to practice law or if voters recall her. 9,000 signatures would remove her from office. Colorado Secretary of State | 1700 Broadway, Suite 200, Denver CO 80290 | 303-894-2200 C.R.S. Title 1 Elections In order to recall a state officeholder (Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, State Treasurer, members of the General Assembly, members of the State Board of Education, members of the CU Board of Regents, members of the RTD Board of Directors, and District Attorney), a recall petition must be created and approved by the Secretary of State’s office prior to obtaining signatures. Recall petitions for county offices must be approved by the county clerk & recorder prior to circulation. Members of Congress and US Senators may not be recalled. An elected official must hold office for 6 months before a recall can be attempted (this rule does not apply to members of the General Assembly, who can be recalled 5 days after the start of the legislative session). No recall can be attempted against an elected official whose term of office will expire within 6 months. The signature threshold to place a recall question on the ballot for a state or county elected official is 25% of the total votes cast at the last preceding general election for that office. If a recall petition is found to have a sufficient number of valid signatures, the question of whether to recall the officeholder is placed on the ballot. Below the recall question on the ballot, recall successor candidates will be listed as choices for voters—the officeholder being recalled cannot be a successor candidate. Recall successor candidates access the ballot via the petition rules in 1-4-801 and 1-4-802 of Colorado Revised Statutes. For laws and rules on recall elections, please refer to Article XXI of the Colorado state constitution (PDF), Article 12 of Title I of the Colorado Revised Statutes, and Rule 15 (PDF) of Secretary of State Election Rules.
