A set of guidelines has been released to aid journalists in covering more safely the 2013 midterm elections on May 13, 2013 (Monday).

Included in the guidelines are tips on what to bring and what to wear in the field, and what to do when caught in gunfire and similarly hostile situations.

Some tips also stress the need for journalists to know their rights, as well as to practice fair and balanced reporting as a tool to keep them out of harm’s way.
