Journalists face "deadly training" in the Philippines

Calling all journalism students-Do you fancy this as part of your training.

Edwin Espejo from the Philippines reports how

24 journalists from all over Mindanao dropped, rolled and crawled at the bursts of gunfire as they simulate situations where they are caught in hostile environment and placed their lives in danger

Red Batario, Philippine coordinator for the Center for Community Journalism and Development and a member of the International News and Safety Institute said the three-day training session was in response to the requests and the growing needs of community journalists to equip themselves with the skills and tools to handle themselves in hostile situation.
