CNN wins Amnesty International media award

CNN International has won the Amnesty International Media award in the ‘International Television and Radio’ category for our documentary, 'World’s Untold Stories: Locked up and Forgotten.'

CNN's David McKenzie highlights the desperate state of Kenya’s mentally disabled community, who live a life hidden away in slums and remote villages across the country.

Kudos to David, photographer Fabien Muhire and producer Ingrid Formanek - who told us this was the most disturbing story she's worked on in 25 years at CNN.  You can see the documentary and special coverage from Back|Story in the links below:
