NEW YORK -- An international media group is
honoring four newswomen from Tibet, Colombia,
Tanzania and Mexico for their courage in standing
up to intimidation, threats and violence.

Tsering Woeser, a Tibetan writer, poet and
blogger; Claudia Julieta Duque, an investigative
radio reporter on Colombia who was abducted twice
and repeatedly threatened; and freelancer Vicky
Ntetema, who went undercover to investigate the
killings of albinos in Tanzania, each received
the 2010 Courage in Journalism Award on Tuesday
from the International Women's Media Foundation.

The group also awarded its Lifetime Achievement
Award to Alma Guillermoprieto, one of two
reporters who broke the story of one of the worst
massacres in modern Latin American history: the
killing of 800 Salvadoran women, men and children by U.S.-trained soldiers.
