Sinds 1992 zijn er volgens deze database 758 journalisten omgekomen.


The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has released a global online database of journalists who have suffered violent deaths relating to their work since 1992. The database is designed to memorialize those who have died and to call call for justice in unsolved cases.
Three Latin American countries, Colombia, Brazil and Mexico, are among the 10 deadliest for murder victims, with Colombia in third with 39 cases.
