BRUSSELS —A total of 45 journalists, including three in Pakistan, were killed across the globe in 2021.
The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) has recorded "one of the lowest death tolls" compared to previous years.
The IFJ noted that media workers "more often than not are killed for exposing corruption, crime and abuse of power in their communities, cities and countries."
"While this decrease is welcome news, it is a small comfort in the face of continued violence," the IFJ said stated on the eve of the new year.
The toll included nine in Afghanistan, the highest number suffered by a single country. Eight died in Mexico, four in India, and three in Pakistan.
The figure also tracked closely with a toll of 46 murders of journalists given two weeks ago by Reporters Without Borders (RSF), which also noted 2021 as its lowest-ever toll since starting its tallies in 1995.
