Al Jazeera marks World Press Freedom Day

The number of journalists arrested, detained and killed while working is on the increase.

    Al Jazeera, along with many other media organisations and press freedom groups, marks World Press Freedom Day on May 3. There has been an increase on previous years in the number of journalists who have been arrested, imprisoned and killed while working.

    Al Jazeera supports the need for a free media, not least at a time when four of Al Jazeera's own staff have been detained in Egypt.
