110 journalists have been killed because of performing their duties in different world countries in 2015.

This is evidenced by the data of the Reporters Without Borders.

Of them, more than two thirds were killed deliberately, the Committee to Protect Journalists says.

According to the organization, the number of confirmed murders was actually 69. The Reporters Without Borders says about 67 journalists who have been killed this year. However, the motives of the murder in another 43 cases have not yet been clarified completely, so 110 journalists have been killed in just one year, according to Reporters Without Borders.

The organization added that another 27 non-professional “citizen-journalists” and seven other media workers were also killed.

Nearly half of all journalists have been killed by members of Al Qaeda or Islamic State terrorist organizations. Syria remains the most dangerous country, although the number of killed journalists has slightly decreased there because of lowered number of journalists who are working in war zones.

However, the journalists have lost their lives outside the war zones in about two thirds of the cases. France came third on both the RSF and the CPJ list this year, where eight journalists were killed an assault on the offices of the satirical magazine “Charlie Hebdo” on January 7, 2015.
