Pakistani authorities have almost completely failed to stop attacks against the media or bring those responsible to account, a report issued by Amnesty International has said.
The issue has been in the spotlight recently because of the attempted assassination two weeks ago of a prominent journalist working for Pakistan's largest privately owned TV station.
The government has promised to do more to protect journalists.
Journalist Jamshed Baghwan said that he was made to feel like a criminal for doing his job.
