Pakistan: No place for journalists
Jarring statistics, fuelled by the recent spate of violence throughout the nation, showed that in 2012 alone, Pakistan saw five journalist murders. Furthermore, of the 23 murders that occurred over the past decade, not a single suspect was prosecuted.
The global index, which picks out the worst countries for unpunished and fatal violence against journalists, also found soaring impunity rates in Somalia and Brazil. Iraq, with a horrible record for impunity, took the first spot.
