As reported by the Huffington Post, the CPJ survey revealed 232 journalists incarcerated last year. Another 70 journalists were killed in the line of duty, a 43 percent increase over 2011 figures. Twenty-eight journalists, alone, were killed in Syria last year.
The CPJ also compiled a 10-nation "Risk List" that cited countries in which reporters were at risk of losing their lives or their freedom. Somalia, Pakistan, Ecuador, Vietnam, Ethiopia, Brazil, Russia, Turkey, Iran and Syria made the list.
