Students call for press freedom following Ressa arrest

A student holds a placard during a protest at the University of the Philippines-Diliman Campus on Thursday in support of news website Rappler chief Maria Ressa, who was arrested the day before for a cyber libel case. Ressa was freed on bail on Feb. 14 following an arrest that sparked international censure and allegations she was being targeted over her news site's criticism of President Rodrigo Duterte.
