No mention of Iraq in Reporters Without Borders' report
12/20/2012 4:05 PM

 BAGHDAD/ Aswat al-Iraq: Iraq was absent in the annual report of Reports Without Borders for 2012, which registers the violations against journalists around the world.

Iraq was taking the lead in the news of killing and abducting journalist, but now Syria is heading off in the list.

The organization described 2012 as the "bloodiest year", confirming that 88 journalists and 47 bloggers were killed around the world since the beginning of this year, with an increase of 33% in comparison of 2011.

It described this year as the worst since publishing its annual reports in 1995.

Turkey was the first, in five countries, in prisoning journalists, where the figure reached to 193, with an increase since the escalation of the Kurdish conflict.

Reporters Without Borders, stationed in Paris, is a non-governmental organization that defends the freedom of press.
