AP wins Pulitzer Prize for reporting on abuse

This year's awards marked the 100th anniversary of US journalism's top honours which began in 1917 after a bequest from newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer.

The AP's prize-winning Seafood from Slaves report was an investigation into the mistreatment of workers in South-East Asia used to supply seafood to international supermarkets and restaurants.

The reporters "found captive slaves, countering industry claims that the problems had been solved", AP executive editor Kathleen Carroll wrote in her nomination letter to the Pulitzer judges.
