Our organisation actively monitors the cases of media employees who pay the ultimate price in their efforts to bring us the news.


A way of honouring the courage and determination of men and women who lose their lives while reporting on conflicts, challenging governments or investigating corruption and crime, WAN-IFRA highlights the number of journalists who have been confirmed as killed in the line of duty or targeted because of their work. These figures are collated by the Committee to Protect Journalists and rely on a specific methodological approach, using terminology that helps in the analysis of each incident.
