Quiz: What are the dangers facing journalists globally?

by Nesa Mangal

There has been a growing number of crimes against journalists around the world, with more reporters being killed or imprisoned, and perpetrators enjoying full impunity. Many journalists are unable to return to their home countries out of fear of being jailed or killed.

Several organisations like Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), among others, have been documenting ongoing crimes against the press around the globe.  

On International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists, a day marked by the United Nations General Assembly, we remember those who gave their lives while in the field, those imprisoned, and those who risk getting caught in the crossfire every day to report their stories.
