According to a recent report, the number of journalists killed in 2022 increased by 30% over the previous year as a result of the conflict in Ukraine, the unrest in Haiti, and criminal organizations in Mexico.
According to the International Federation of Journalists, 67 journalists and media workers have died so far in 2022, up from 47 in the previous year.
The Brussels-based organization reports 375 journalists are currently imprisoned for their work, primarily in China, Myanmar, and Turkey.
