Mauritania story scoops award

CNN Digital and CNN International have triumphed at the Foreign Press Association Media Awards, winning three categories.

The Print & Web Feature award was clinched by "Mauritania: Slavery's Last Stand" - a CNN Digital feature that revealed the shocking extent of slavery in modern Mauritania. The judges remarked that the piece was "in some ways the most convincing and best edited of all the categories."

The CNN documentary "World's Untold Stories: Secrets of the Belfast Project" won News Story of the Year by a full FPA member.

The Arts & Culture award was given to "Leonardo - The Lost Painting," a documentary that explored the story behind the recent discovery of a Leonardo da Vinci painting.

    Mauritania was just elected to co chair the UN Human Rights commission because sort of still having chattel slavery (technically illegal rarely enforced) and executing Muslim apostates as a matter of actual national law isn't sufficient grounds to warrant any sort of human rights violation by the UN.
