The Association of Journalists of Kosovo (AJK) is appalled by the attack in Prizren on the Nacionale’s team journalist Vullnet Krasniqi, and camera operator Arbër Latifi.
Krasniqi and Latifi were there to report on the protest organized by local imams against the “Dokufest” festival.
According to media reports, they were assaulted and pushed while carrying out their duties by some protestors.
This is an unacceptable attack that poses a severe threat to the safety of journalists.
The AJK requests that the attackers be arrested immediately by the police and brought to justice.
