At least 50 journalists and media employees were killed in connection with their work in the past year. That’s according to an annual report compiled by Reporters Without Borders.

Instead, journalists are targeted for trying to expose crime and corruption. Together with Mexico, Iraq, Pakistan and India, Afghanistan is one of the top five deadliest countries for journalists.
