Journalist Deaths in Iraq Spike in 2006

A new report from the Committee to Protect Journalists notes that violence claimed the lives of thirty-two journalists in Iraq in 2006 — a 45 percent increase over 2005. Of those killed, thirty were Iraqis and three were women. Since the invasion of Iraq in March 2003, ninety-two journalists and thirty-seven media-support workers, including interpreters and drivers, have been killed in the conflict. A detailed account of each death is posted on the CPJ Web site.
