Journalists more than ever in danger in war zones

Proposals and responses of Reporters Without Borders

Several dozen journalists are killed each year while reporting on wars. The fighting in Iraq, the most deadly conflict since World War II for the media, has made it even more urgent to protect those who report in these conditions.

Reporters Without Borders offers journalists legal and other material (a Practical Guide, a Safety Charter, training courses and other facilities) as well as safety equipment (bulletproof jackets, helmets, distress beacons and first-aid kits) and a hotline for those in trouble in the field.
