2015 Was Second-Worst Year For Journalist Killings In Decade, UN Says

“One journalist is being killed every five days as a result of their work, UNESCO reported on November 2. Of the 827 journalists killed in the last 10 years, 115 were killed last year, making 2015 the second-deadliest year of the decade for journalists, the report said. Syria and Iraq, where the Islamic State executed several journalists in highly publicized beheadings after establishing its so-called caliphate there in 2014, were by far the most dangerous places for journalists to work, accounting for 24 deaths in 2014 and 23 in 2015.”
