At least 67 media professionals and journalists will die on the job in 2022

According to a new estimate released on Friday, there were 30% more journalists killed while carrying out their jobs in 2022 than there were in 2021 due to the conflict Russia is waging in Ukraine, the unrest in Haiti, and the rise in criminal group violence in Mexico.

According to the International Federation of Journalists, 67 media professionals have died around the world so far this year, up from 47 in 2016.

The Brussels-based organisation also counted 375 journalists who are currently behind bars for their profession, with the majority being held in China, Myanmar, and Turkey. According to the data from last year, 365 journalists were detained.
