Rights group voices concern over press freedom in Pakistan

Human Rights Watch has accused Pakistani President General Pervez Musharraf of muzzling the press by allowing journalists to be threatened or harassed.

In a letter to Musharraf, the rights group, based in New York, expressed concern over reports that magazine journalist Amir Mia had been threatened and his car set ablaze by intelligence agents after he had written stories critical of the Pakastani armed forces.

Nigel Tandy has been talking to Brad Adams from Human Rights Watch and asked him to explain the background to the Amir Mia case and the dangers facing reporters in Pakistan.
