We've launched a new section of our Web site
, and we hope you
take a few minutes to read some of its pages. There is one, for example, on Russian reporter Natalya Estemirova
, who dared to examine human rights crimes in Chechnya
. Another is devoted to Francisco Javier
, a Tijuana
newspaper editor who exposed the workings of the Arellano Félix drug cartel. They are among the 758 journalists killed for their work since 1992. Our new database memorializes these women and men, most of whom were local reporters, photographers, producers, and editors who confronted the powerful or took unpopular positions.
