ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) has termed 2014 as the worst in a decade for Pakistani journalists and media workers.
In a statement issued Tuesday, the PFUJ Secretary General Khursheed Abbasi said journalists and media workers were killed inside their offices and duty places but “not a single perpetrator of these incidents has been prosecuted in the court of law for one reason or the other.”
The year 2014 claimed 14 lives among them eight journalists and six media workers in numerous incidents of target killings, attacks on workers and media houses in Pakistan, the statement said.
The secretary has termed the incident of January 17 in Karachi and August 28 in Quetta as the worst in which two journalists and four media employees were killed.
Pakistan has been rated as the third most dangerous country for journalists.
