France, Syria Deadliest Countries for Journalists


The Committee to Protect Journalists released a report showing 2015 was one of the most dangerous years on record for journalists worldwide, with 69 of them killed on-assignment.

28 died at the hands of Islamic militant groups such as Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. War-torn Iraq and Syria were the most dangerous places for journalists followed by France.

"The most common beat covered by victims was politics, followed by war and human rights. At least 28 of the 47 murder victims received threats before they were killed," CPJ says.
