The AEJ and other media freedom groups have condemned a targeted assault on investigative journalist Visar Duriqi in Kosovo.

He was hospitalised with serious head and face injuries after the late-night ambush attack near his home.
Duriqi had just made a TV appearance in which he accused public officials of corruption and abuse of their positions.

The European Union’s office in the capital, Pristina, condemned the attack and declared that journalists must be allowed to carry out their work freely and safely.
