Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Menard has gone to Beirut, where he has met with executives and editors of news media that have been the victim of Israeli air strikes including the LBC
, New TV
and Al Manar television stations. He also met with representatives of the National Council of media. Since the start of the fighting, the Israeli military has destroyed the transmitters of several TV
stations, killing an LBC
technician, reduced the premises of Al Manar, the Hezbollah TV
station, to ruins, inflicted injuries on a three-member New TV
crew and killed a young woman photographer, Layal Nagib, near Tyre.
