According to The Committee to Protect Journalists, 53 journalists lost their lives on the job so far this in 2018. The advocacy group claims that 34 of them were singled out for murder. Three types of deaths were tracked—reprisal murders, deaths in combat or crossfire and deaths on other dangerous assignments like covering protests that turn violent. After two years of decline the number of killings increased in 2018 while the number of journalists behind bars remained at a sustained rate amid a global clampdown on press freedom.
