At safety conference, CPJ issues report on deaths of journalists

Doha, Qatar, May 23, 2005—The Committee to Protect Journalists issued a report today to an ad hoc group investigating journalist safety issues. The group requested the statement from CPJ as part of its yearlong effort to study the causes and effects of the rising death toll of journalists worldwide.

Known as the Committee of Inquiry, the ad hoc group is headed by Richard Sambrook, director of the BBC's Global News Division, and sponsored by the International News Safety Institute, a consortium of news organizations and press freedom groups. The report was released during a meeting of the Committee of Inquiry, which includes CPJ Journalist Security Coordinator Frank Smyth, in Doha, Qatar.

WHO KILLS JOURNALISTS AND WHY? Report by the Committee to Protect Journalists to the Committee of Inquiry


Doha, Qatar, Monday, May 23, 2005
—The Committee to Protect Journalists has analyzed the deaths of journalists across the world for many years, producing two recent reports that highlight alarming trends in the circumstances, locations, and motives.

At least 339 journalists were killed on duty between 1995 and 2004, according to CPJ research compiled in January. But the vast majority did not die on any battlefield, or while covering a dangerous assignment. They were murdered in cold blood, in reprisal for their work or to prevent them from doing their jobs.

Attacks on the Press 2004: Israel and the Palestinian Authority Territories

Israel and the Occupied Territories, including the Palestinian Authority Territories

With Iraq dominating media security concerns in the Middle East, journalists covering the region's other main flash point quietly faced a familiar array of hazards on the job. The occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip remained two of the most dangerous and unpredictable assignments for journalists in 2004, largely because of the conduct of Israeli troops. Although the situation was not as dire as in other years, like 2002, when fighting was at peak levels, Israel's army and security services continued to commit a range of abuses against working journalists, who faced the possibilities of gunfire, physical abuse, and arrest, in addition to sharp limits on their freedom of movement.
