RIOT CHARGE AGAINST US JOUR­NAL­IST DIS­MISSED

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

WASH­ING­TON: A US judge yes­ter­day re­jected a riot charge against a well-known jour­nal­ist that stemmed from her re­port on vi­o­lent con­fronta­tions over a ma­jor pipe­line con­struc­tion project in North Dakota. John Grin­steiner ruled there was no cause to charge the Democ­racy Now! reporter Amy Good­man with “en­gag­ing in a riot”. Good­man – whose daily show reaches hun­dreds of ra­dio and TV sta­tions and broad­casts on­line – filmed vi­o­lent clashes be­tween pro­test­ers and se­cu­rity guards in the state in Septem­ber. – AFP
