CPJ: New Database of Journalists Killed in Action

28 October 2009

(CPJ/IFEX) - New York, October 26, 2009 - The Committee to Protect Journalists has launched a new database of journalists killed in action. Drawing on years of CPJ research, the database offers interactive maps and timelines, along with statistical breakdowns by year, country and cause of death. Perhaps most important, though, are the narrative capsules devoted to each of the 758 journalists killed since 1992. We have also released a short video report entitled "Portraits of the Fallen" in which CPJ’s María Salazar-Ferro examines the killings of journalists worldwide.
