Serbian Journalists Protest Against Acts of Intimidation

Journalists in Serbia have staged a protest after a video targeted BIRN Serbia editor Slobodan Georgiev, calling him a "traitor".

The video was distributed via Twitter and also targeted other independent journalists and portals.

Journalists gathered in front of the Hi Tech Prosecution in Belgrade, demanding that the authorities react and do more to protect journalists.

The Serbian journalists' associations condemned the video, as did the OSCE media freedom representative Harlem Desir.

On Thursday he said he felt "shocked by the video" and added that "portraying journalists as traitors in Serbia can seriously endanger their safety".
