8:13- THREAT TO JOURNALISTS AT HIGHEST LEVEL IN 10 YEARS, REPORT SAYS:
SEVENTY-EIGHT JOURNALISTS KILLED AND 326 IMPRISONED AROUND WORLD LAST YEAR, STUDY FINDS
Journalism is more dangerous - and more under threat - than at any point in the last decade, according to a report, which found that 78 journalists were killed last year while doing their job. The rise of authoritarian governments and the threat of internet censorship has redoubled pressures on reporters globally, according to the human rights organization Article 19, which found that a further 326 journalists were imprisoned for their work during 2017, a substantial increase on the previous year. More than half of those behind bars were held in Turkey, China, and Egypt, often on charges of opposing the state.
