Fifty media leaders from the Asia-Pacific region shared their views and concerns on 13 and 14 October at a "Reporting on violence and emergencies" conference hosted by the International Committee of the Red Cross. The media of East Asia, South-east Asia and the Pacific have an important role to play in covering conflict, violence and the issues faced by vulnerable groups. At times, reporting on these situations puts the media's own safety at risk. We have collected some of the participants' comments.
