DOTO BRIEF

We have begun our work by going to the most obvious and easily accessible places: t he national English news media and prominent civil society reports. The data we currently have is neither comprehensive nor truly representative, but it does represent a collation of the most easily accessible information in one place . Our database currently has 482 incidents in which 3023 victims are reported. You can get full details and breakup of the numbers at dotodatabase.com .
