The Cyprus Broadcasting Authority on Tuesday called on the media to show some respect and sensitivity in their coverage of the wildfires in Greece that have killed 60 people so far.

It said regulations provide that the dead be respected and not have their image broadcast or published.

Also, it said, the transmission of any scenes unsuitable for minors or likely to affect viewers’ sensitivities should carry a warning.
