The unseen danger


Share the story of a time you felt unsafe.

Countless times. Being in Mostar during the Balkan’s war. Reporting about violent demonstrations on the streets of my city. Being confronted by a vandal with his face covered and a molotov cocktail in his hand ready to throw it to me with his leaders telling him “do it!”, “She is a journalist!”. Being in a terrorist hiding place full of explosives and weapons during a police operation. Those were times when I saw danger in front of me. I felt especially unsafe when I perceived unseen danger, like knowing that a criminal about whom I made a report, was following and watching me, not knowing where he was and what he was doing. Then there is no way to know what to do but to ask for protection. It’s a very scary situation.
