*******************************************************************************************************************************

NOTE: The PEC includes in its statistics suspected work-related deaths among journalists, correspondents, freelances, cameramen, sound technicians, technicians, photographers, producers, media administrators, cyber-reporters. The figures do not register casualties among other media employees like drivers, guards, security staff. We do not include occasional media activists, bloggers, net-citizens. Sources are PEC members, news agencies, local media, national press associations, IFJ, UN, NGOs. The list of media workers' casualties is updated on a monthly basis since the first session of the UN Human Rights Council June 2006.  

We differentiate casualties between four categories: (T) for journalists intentionally targeted, (A) for journalists killed accidentally, i.e. in a terrorist blast or in cross-fire in fightings - private circumstances and road accidents are excluded - (C) for criminal causes (i.e. killed by drug traffickers) and (O) for other or unknown causes. The category changes when there are new findings. We indicate for each case the name of the journalist, the media organization, the location of the murder, the country and the date. Editor in charge: Blaise Lempen (for remarks send an e-mail to: pressemblem@bluewin.ch)
