Yemen’s Assault on Media
2010 Oslo Freedom Forum
Prominent Yemeni journalist and press freedom advocate Abdulkarim al-Khaiwani was assassinated on March 18 outside of his home in Sanaa. He joined us in 2010 to speak about his fight to expose corruption and tyranny in Yemen. Al-Khaiwani will be remembered for his devotion to truth and justice.
