Al-Masry Al-Youm has been included in the short list of 12 nominees for the Global Shining awards to be given out on October 10.
The awards are delivered to winners at the end of the Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Norway from October 8-11.
Al-Masry Al-Youm’s Mohamed al-Kazzaz is competing with his article “Egypt-Italy Death Trip”, which the conference’s website described as telling “the inside story of families and brokers smuggling children on ‘boats of death’ to Italy”, adding that Kazzaz “documents harrowing stories at sea, hard times in Italy, and a broken immigration system”.
Other nominees are from China, Russia, Serbia, Ukraine, South Africa and Tunisia.
