Summary
Since 2013 more than 1,000 journalists have been killed for reporting the news and bringing information to the public.

Every year, the profession of a journalist becomes more and more dangerous. Over the past 25 years, many crimes and physical attacks on journalists have been committed. In nine out of ten cases, the criminals remained unpunished.

In 2013 the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 2 November as the ‘International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists’ in General Assembly Resolution A/RES/68/163. The Resolution urged Member States to implement definite measures countering the present culture of impunity. The date was chosen in commemoration of the assassination of two French journalists in Mali on 2 November 2013.
