Journalists in Peril
The following is a list of journalists who died
covering the news. The list has been compiled by Newseum staffers
from information circulated by the Committee to Protect Journalists,
the International Press Institute, the International Freedom
of Expression Clearing House, Reporters Sans Frontières, the
International Federation of Journalists, the Inter American Press
Association, news stories and other sources.
This is a working list.
Preliminary research indicates these
journalists may be eligible for inclusion
on the Freedom Forum's Journalists Memorial.
However, the question of why these journalists
died has not been answered in all cases.
Additional research and reporting will
follow before final selections are made.
Any information about the deaths of
these and other journalists may be sent
to Patty Rhule. Rhule can be reached at email@example.com.
