Anonymous from Burundi

September 11, 2015 | 8:37 PM GMT
According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, at least 100 reporters have fled Burundi in the past year as press freedom deteriorates in the country. The broadcast journalist, who asked to remain anonymous to protect her family, sought asylum in France after receiving death threats on her phone. Since she left the country, African Public Radio, where she worked, was attacked, set on fire and forced to close. In France, she was granted a spot at the La Maison des Journalistes, a Paris-based nonprofit that provides assistance to exiled journalists including housing.
