CPJ report: 44 journalists killed worldwide in 2010

PDFPrintE-mail

A total of 44 journalists were killed worldwide in 2010 in relation to their work with Pakistan being tagged as the deadliest country where eight media men were slain due to suicide bomb attacks, according to the New York based Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ).

A CPJ 2010 annual report sent to the Philippines News Agency said “the worldwide toll reflects a notable drop from 2009, when a massacre in the Philippines (in Maguindanao province) drove the number of work-related deaths to a record 72.)

Thirty-two Filipino journalists out of 57 victims were killed in that infamous Maguindanao massacre in southern Philippines on Aug. 23, 2009 that shocked the media around the world. It was the largest number of slain journalists in one incident perpetrated by close to 200 gunmen who shot at close range their victims hapless without mercy.

In the CPJ 2010 report, it said five journalists were killed in Iraq, followed by Honduras, Mexico and Indonesia with three killings each.

CPJ released its preliminary findings on December 15. Since then, however, CPJ confirmed the killings of two additional journalists in Indonesia and Iraq.
According to the CPJ, murder was the leading cause of work-related deaths in 2010, as it has been in past years.

But deaths in combat-related crossfire and in dangerous assignments such as street protests constituted about 40 percent of the 2010 toll, a larger portion than usual.

CPJ has compiled detailed records on journalist fatalities since 1992. CPJ staff members independently investigate and verify the circumstances behind each death.

CPJ considers a case work-related only when reasonably certain that a journalist was killed in direct reprisal for his or her work; in crossfire; or while carrying out a dangerous assignment. Cases involving unclear motives, but with a potential link to journalism, are classified as “unconfirmed” and CPJ continues to investigate.

CPJ is a New York-based, independent, nonprofit organization that works to safeguard press freedom. (PNA)
