Media workers in Afghanistan "self-censor" their work due to a lack of safety according to a senior Afghan journalist speaking on the UN's International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists.

Deadly threats are commonplace in the South Asian country, making it one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a media worker.

Mohammad Hamed Haleemi has been speaking to the Director of the Afghan Journalists Safety Committee, Najib Sharifi.
