A survivor of January’s terrorist attacks in Paris is suing media that he says endangered his life with their coverage, according to an Associated Press report.
Lilian Lepere hid when gunmen attacked the printing press where he worked. While Lepere remained in hiding, news outlets reported that he may have been hiding, potentially alerting gunmen to his presence. In total, 20 people were killed by Islamic extremists in attacks across the city including at the Charlie Hebdo newspaper.
“Delivering information without careful consideration may lead to endanger other’s lives. Journalists must think of it,” Antoine Casubolo Ferro, Lepere’s lawyer, told the Associated Press.
A French media regulator issued warnings to 16 French broadcasters over a variety of coverages issues related to the terrorist attacks, including endangering the hostages.
