IFJ List of Journalists and Media Staff Killed in 2013


The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) today issued a list of 123 people killed in 2013 (link below).  The IFJ classified 15 of those deaths as accidental and 108 were classified as targeted killings.  In releasing the list, the IFJ called for governments around the world to stop the violence.  We who live in the United States often forget just how dangerous it is to work in journalism (even though incidents of harassment here appear to be on the rise).  As this year draws to a close, please hold in your thoughts those who lost their lives in pursuit of the truth.
