Unsafe for journalists: ‘Pakistan among most dangerous countries again’

AFP: GENEVA: At least 106 journalists were killed in 2011, among them 12 in Mexico and 11 in Pakistan, making them the most dangerous countries to work in, a campaign group said on Monday.

Twenty journalists who reported on the Arab spring uprisings were killed this year and more than 100 others were attacked, intimidated, arrested and wounded in countries including Egypt, Libya, Syria, Tunisia and Yemen, the Geneva-based Press Emblem Campaign said.

“The casualties could be higher if figures were known for journalists who were victims of enforced disappearances,” the group said in a statement.
