1,073 journalist killed since 1992

Skärmavbild 2014-09-02 kl. 22.12.35This is so, so horrible. The most dangerous countries for journalist are Iraq, Philippines, Syria, Algeria and Russia and most of the journalist were covering politics or war. I am afraid that the per cent of killed journalists that are freelanced will get higher year after year in the changing media landscape. And I have to say, it feels more and more important that the world gets to know what is going on even in closed, violent and corrupt places. All numbers from Committee to Protect Journalist are available here. Interesting, but horrifying statistics.
