List Notes: List last updated by January, 2014. Data is number of journalists killed by country for the year 2013 categorized by the term: "Motive confirmed". The Committee to Protect Journalists investigates the death of every journalist to determine whether it is work-related. CPJ consider a case "confirmed" only if they are reasonably certain that a journalist was murdered in direct reprisal for his or her work; was killed in crossfire during combat situations; or was killed while carrying out a dangerous assignment such as coverage of a street protest. The CPJ database does not include journalists killed in accidents such as car or plane crashes.
