It has been a black September for journalists covering dangerous stories around the world, reports the International News Safety Institute (INSI).
According to its count, there have been 13 deaths – in Somalia, Syria, Cambodia, Iraq and Tanzania – with two more suspected of being killed because of their work.
And at least 99 journalists and other news media staff have died trying to cover the news so far this year. “Ominously,” comments INSI, “this is more than the number we had counted killed by the end of October last year.”
