Fifty journalists were killed worldwide in 1998, nearly twice the number the year before. Latin America is the most dangerous part of the world – 22 journalists were killed there last year according to the International Federation of Journalists. The worst countries were Colombia, where ten were killed, and Mexico, where six journalists were murdered. In Peru, the National Association of Journalists registered 121 attacks on journalists or media outlets.
