AFP’s reporting on human rights in Asia was recognised in Hong Kong on Saturday with three awards for photojournalism in the Human Rights Press Awards.

Iran-based AFP photographer Behrouz Mehri won two prizes in the photojournalism feature category for his images of street children and heroin addicts in the strife-torn southern Pakistani city of Karachi.

Myanmar-based photographer Soe Than Win was awarded a merit in the same category for a series of pictures of democracy leader and Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.

The 16th annual awards were organised by the city’s Foreign Correspondents’ Club, the Hong Kong Journalists Association and Amnesty International Hong Kong.
