Deadliest month for journalists with most killed being Palestinian, CPJ says
At least 50 journalists, 45 of them Palestinian have been killed since the war began on Oct 7, the Committee to Protect Journalists says. The first four weeks of the conflict were the deadliest month for journalists since the organization began tracking fatalities in 1992, it says.
“Those in Gaza, in particular, have paid, and continue to pay, an unprecedented toll and face exponential threats,” Sherif Mansour, CPJ’s Middle East and North Africa program coordinator, said in a statement on its website.
“Many have lost colleagues, families, and media facilities, and have fled seeking safety when there is no safe haven or exit,” Mansour added.
