Doha Center Helps UB Post Photographer

A PHOTOGRAPHER who contributes to the UB Post, B.Byamba-Ochir, received serious head injury when the post-election demonstration he was covering on July 1 turned violent.
The Doha Center for Media Freedom last week helped to pay for the photographer’s urgently required medical treatment, which he will receive outside of Mongolia.
Byamba-Ochir, a photographer with the Mongol News Media Group, which publishes several independent periodicals including than the UB Post, is an award-winning professional photojournalist.
The Doha Center for Media Freedom was set up in 2007 to provide journalists with assistance, whatever their origin, culture or views.
