Committee to Protect Journalists Says 74 Reporters Killed in 2016

Washington, January 7 (RHC)-- The Committee to Protect Journalists says a total of 74 reporters were killed in 2016.  The report finds 53 journalists were deliberately targeted and murdered for their work, while another 21 were killed while reporting, largely in conflict zones.

The deadliest countries for journalists were, in order: Syria, Afghanistan, Mexico, Iraq and Yemen.  Mexico was the deadliest country not officially at war, with nine journalists killed, including crime reporter Anabel Flores Salazar, who was kidnapped in Veracruz in February and found dead along the side of the road in a neighboring state the following day.
