Dangerous work, if you can get it

At a recent Congress, the Director of UNESCO highlighted increasing violence against reporters. In 2004-05, 70 have died.

Reporters without Borders cite the war on terror as the cause of many deaths. 51 by their count.

Updated 5/4: In a follow-up article, Colombia is the most dangerous country in the Americas for reporters. In Mexico, the national press is fairly secure, but regional and local reporters risk danger from drug cartels and mafiasos.
