Leading Pakistani TV journalist Hamid Mir, (C), who survived an April attack by gunmen in Karachi, is surrounded by journalists as he leaves the Supreme Court on a wheelchair after his appearance before the judicial commission in Islamabad on May 19, 2014. Journalists in Pakistan are “under siege”, Amnesty International warned, living with the constant threat of violence from intelligence agencies, armed groups such as the Taliban and even political parties. The shooting of Hamid Mir, the host of the primetime current affairs show “Capital Talk” on Pakistan’s top-rating channel Geo, has led to a bitter row between the broadcaster and the military.
