32 Reporters Killed Since the Beginning of the Year


Thirty-two journalists and press collaborators have been murdered since the beginning of the year while doing their jobs. Although the number of deaths is down compared to 2019 due to the world health crisis, it still remains worrying emphasized NGO Reporters sans frontières on the occasion of “International Day To End Impunity for Crimes Committed Against Journalists” (2 November). The NGO renewed its appeal to UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, to create a post of “special representative for the safety of journalists.” In 2019, forty-nine journalists were killed throughout the world, a sizeable decrease compared to the previous year.
