Iraq journalist death toll sets record

Violence in Iraq took the lives of 32 journalists this year, reports the Committee to Protect Journalists, the largest number of journalist deaths in a single country that CPJ has ever recorded. It says in most cases insurgents specifically targeted journalists for death. Overall, 55 journalists around the world were killed in direct connection for their work during 2006, an increase over the 47 journalists killed in 2005.
