New York, June 25, 2007—The Committee to Protect Journalists condemns Friday’s brutal attack on Iren Karman, an investigative journalist who had published a book and made a documentary film on illegal oil sales in 1990s Hungary.

Unknown assailants assaulted Karman in the outskirts of the capital, Budapest, on Friday evening, pushed her into a car, tied and severely beat her, and left her on the banks of the Danube River, where a fisherman found her and summoned authorities, the Hungarian News Agency (MTI) reported.
