Alwaght- At least 65 journalists have been killed in 2017 while jobs doing their, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) said on Tuesday adding that 60 percent of them were murdered.

According to the media freedom organization's figures, among the dead were 50 professional journalists, seven citizen journalists and eight other media workers.

The five most dangerous countries were Syria, Mexico, Afghanistan, Iraq and the Philippines.

RSF stressed that some countries which are not at war have become as dangerous for reporters as war zones, with 30 of victims (46 percent) being killed outside regions where armed conflict is ongoing.

Thirty-nine of those killed were targeted for their journalistic work such as reporting on political corruption or organized crime while the other 26 were killed while working due to shelling and bomb attacks, for example.

Mexico, with 11 killed, ranked second deadliest country for journalists after Syria where 12 reporters died.

“It’s alarming that so many journalists were murdered outside of war zones,” said Katja Gloger, a board member of Reporters Without Borders.

“In far too many countries perpetrators can assume they’ll get off scot-free if they’re violent towards media professionals,” she added.

The organization said more than 300 media workers were currently in prison.
