Murder in India, closure in Cambodia

By Jan van der Made

In this week’s International Media, we go to India, where activists, politicians and journalists demanded a full investigation into the murder of Gauri Lankesh, a newspaper editor and outspoken critic of the ruling Hindu nationalist party whose death has sparked an outpouring of anger.

Meanwhile in Cambodia one of the country’s last independent newspapers was closed with the disappearance of the Cambodia Daily.

The newspaper announced on Sunday it was closing after 24 years after being slapped with a $6.3 million tax bill which its publishers said was politically motivated.
