• INSI has recorded the deaths of 77 journalists and media staff this year, with a further 28 cases under investigation.
Syria continues to be the deadliest country for journalists and media workers – at least 19 news media casualties have been recorded since the start of 2012. Many more have been injured, detained and threatened.
INSI has been working with its members, who include some of the world’s leading media organisations, to share and collate information that might impact on the safety of journalists and news crews covering the events there.
The situation in Syria is extremely volatile and INSI urges all journalists covering Syria to read our safety advisory.
