Pakistan ranked ‘most dangerous place for journalists’ second year running

Express Tribune: Endemic violence, targeted attacks and threats against journalists in Pakistan have contributed to a ranking of 151 out of 179 countries worldwide on the 2011-2012 Press Freedom Index issued by Reporters without Borders on Wednesday, reported Journalism Pakistan.

Journalists in Pakistan are victims of target killings and are under constant threat from the Taliban and other terrorist groups contributing to its fast growing reputation as one of the “world’s deadliest country for journalists.”

So much so that the press release from Reporters without Border stated, “Pakistan (151) was the world’s deadliest country for journalists for the second year running.”
