UNESCO: Still Widespread Impunity for Killing Journalists

Print More


To mark this year’s International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists, November 2, UNESCO is out with a troubling new report that finds it’s still easy to get away with murder for killing journalists. Here’s the good news: last year logged the lowest annual death toll for journalists in a decade, with 57 deaths. The bad news: the level of impunity remains extraordinarily high, with almost nine in ten cases resulting in no punishment.

The full report is here, with highlights available in EnglishFrench, and Spanish. You can also view a handy Trello board with additional multilingual resources.
