Over the last year, 50 journalists were killed around the world. Eight of them died in Mexico.
Reporters Without Borders (RSF) on Tuesday published its annual report on journalists who have been killed while carrying out their work, noting that Mexico ranks first among the most dangerous countries for journalists.
This year, 50 journalists have been killed worldwide. RSF noted that 68 percent of the deaths occurred in countries considered to be at peace while 84 percent of the journalists were deliberately targeted and eliminated.
The most dangerous news coverages continue to be investigations into local corruption, the mafia, and organized crime.
After recalling that 937 journalists were assassinated over the last 10 years, RSF pointed out that the number of journalists killed in war zones decreased this year.
