A recent BBC news report noted that Reporters Without Borders (RSF) had put Sri Lanka as the fourth most dangerous country in the world for media workers and journalists.
“Sri Lanka, where at least three journalists were killed, is the fourth most dangerous country for journalists, according to RSF.
The watchdog says Iraq, where 47 journalists killed, Somalia and Pakistan are the more ‘deadly’ countries than Sri Lanka.”
The RSF ranking follows another by the Press Emblem Campaign (PEC) based in Geneva, Switzerland in late 2007 that listed Sri Lanka as the third most dangerous country in the world for journalists and media workers.
