A Reporters Without Borders Report

Syria is now the world’s most dangerous country for journalists. According to a Reporters Without Borders tally, more than 110 news providers (including 25 professional journalists) have been killed in connection with their work since March 2011 and more than 60 are currently detained (either held hostage by Islamist armed groups or held in Bashar Al-Assad’s jails).

This report was originally published by Reporters Without Borders in November 2013.
