Razan Zeitouneh – Risking her life to report on the revolution and its atrocities

34-year-old Razan Zeitouneh is a lawyer and human rights activist. She is the founder of the website “Syrian Human Rights Information Link” documenting human rights abuses in Syria. When the uprisings began in March Zeitouneh started to write on the arrests, torture, and killings of peaceful protestors committed by the security forces. Her accounts have been one of the key sources of the events taking place in Syria for the outside world. Under the threat of being arrested and killed she now lives in hiding.
