Reporting from the rooftops to avoid being arrested in Western Sahara: Nazha al Khalidi



Nazha al Khalidi says she was beaten and arrested by Moroccan authorities for using her phone to record and live-stream events on social media in Western Sahara.

"I work as an activist journalist in social networks to break the information blockade that Morocco has subjected to the population of Western Sahara for years," said the Saharawi Nazha al Khalidi, which will be judged on May 20 by the Moroccan authorities under the accusation of exercising the profession without being qualified to do so.

"We do the work from rooftops and clandestine places to avoid the difficulty of going out on the street with a camera and being arrested for filming a demonstration in a territory forbidden to international journalism," she said in an interview with Efe as she passed through Madrid Al Khalidi , 26 years old, member of the "Equipe Media" collective, has been invited to Spain by the Association of Solidarity with Western Sahara in Seville.
