Shooting the Messenger: Journalists Targeted by All Sides in Syria


Syria has become the most dangerous country in the world for journalists since the eruption of popular protests in 2011 and the development since then of a bitter internal armed conflict. In the vicious battles for power, both the Syrian authorities and armed opposition groups have deliberately targeted journalists who are risking their lives to report on the conflict and expose abuses. This Amnesty International report documents human rights abuses committed against journalists and others involved in reporting the conflict. Urgent action is needed to ensure their safety.
