81 jornalistas e pessoal de apoio mortos em 2023

By Ninian Carter

December 15, 2023 - Dados do Comité de Proteção aos Jornalistass mostram que 81 jornalistas e trabalhadores dos meios de comunicação foram mortos em 2023, mais 68 que no ano passado, com a guerra Israel-Gaza responsável por 63 mortes.

The latest 2023 data from a leading organisation that promotes press freedom highlights the severe dangers facing journalists around the world, and in particular, from the hazards of the Israel-Gaza war.

As of December 14, the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) says 63 journalists and media workers have been killed since the war began on October 7 – a day when six journalists died.

So far this year, 81 journalists and media workers have been killed worldwide, with 65 unaccounted for and a further 363 imprisoned – last year 68 journalists were killed.

In fact, more journalists were killed in the first month of the Israel-Gaza war than in any other similar period of conflict since the CPJ began recording such deaths in 1992.

As of December 14, 2023, the Israel-Gaza war tally on journalists stands at:

DEAD: 56 Palestinian, 4 Israeli, and 3 Lebanese

It is worth bearing in mind that the data shows only confirmed accounts and that the figures are likely to rise as the CPJ continues to investigate reports.
