Two media professionals in Madagascar have won scholarships commemorating murdered RFI journalists Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon. Ando Rakotovoahangy et Hanitriniony Jhons Marry Ralainarivo have been awarded the 2015 Dupont-Verlon memorial prize for journalism.

The awarding of the 2015 Dupont-Verlon memorial prize for journalism comes two years after the two RFI journalists were murdered in Kidal in northern Mali. Both cases remain unsolved.

Ando Rakotovoahangy is a journalist. Hanitriniony Jhons Marry Ralainarivo is a radio technician.

This is the scholarship's second annual awarding.

Sorry but the period of time connection to the operation is exceeded.
