The annual courage awards went to Adela Navarro Bello, general director of Zeta newsmagazine in Tijuana, Mexico, who is under threat by the drug cartels; Parisa Hafezi, who has been threatened and beaten for her reporting in Iran; and Chiranuch Premchaiporn, who is facing prison for criticizing the Thai monarchy on her website.
