“Where is Prageeth?”










Cartoon by Prageeth Eknaligoda, Sri Lanka






Prageeth Eknaligoda, a journalist, cartoonist and political analyst, went missing nearly one year
ago. He disappeared in Colombo on 24 January 2010.

Cartooning for Peace and Reporters Without Borders are marking this sad anniversary by launching an international support campaign, using 12 cartoons by cartoonists throughout the world to symbolize each of the 12 months that Prageeth has been missing.
