Journalists reporting in conflict zones should refer to a new guide for tips on covering conflict and abuse, written by veteran broadcast reporter and current employee of the UN peacekeeping mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Jaldeep Katwala.

The guide advises journalists to be diligent with investigation of facts, avoid contextual clichés, and ensure the independence of coverage, among other tips.

The guide is published on Media Helping Media, an online forum dedicated to global reporting.
