Multimedia: The Year in Photos

Photographers from The Associated Press, Reuters, Agence France-Presse, and other news outlets documented historic events in 2011, often at great peril. The Year in Photographs: Press Freedom in 2011 features images from the Arab uprisings, South Asia's armed conflicts, and political repression in the Americas, Africa, and Europe.


Sexual assault
Sexual violence against journalists is discussed more openly, but few concrete changes have been made.

Journalist Security
Coverage of street protests grows ever risky. The journalist security field also confronts sexual violence, organized crime, and digital vulnerability.

Journalists Killed
Murders decline, but fatalities rise during coverage of protests. Photographers and freelancers pay an especially high price.
