Jon Stephenson Afghanistan feature wins international award

New Zealand journalist Jon Stephenson has won the written press trophy at the prestigious Bayeux-Calvados awards for war correspondents, for his Metro feature Eyes Wide Shut, on New Zealand’s involvement in the transfer of detainees to torture in Afghanistan.

The results of the annual awards were announced on Saturday in France.

In 2006 Stephenson received the same award for a two-part Metro report from Iraq.

The UN has today released a report on what it calls 'systematic torture' of detainees in Afghanistan.
