UNESCO said Monday that a total of 86 journalists have been killed worldwide in 2022, compared with 55 in 2021, with more than half occurring in Latin America and the Caribbean, warned.

“It is alarming that the number of murders of journalists is rising sharply in 2022, after years of consecutive declines,” UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay said in a statement.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization recalls that since 2018 (99 informants have been killed), it has fallen to an average of 58 between 2019 and 2021.

Of the 86 homicides in 2022, 44 will occur in Latin America and the Caribbean, with Mexico (19) and Haiti (9) leading the way. Sixteen vehicles were produced in Asia and the Pacific, and 11 in Eastern Europe.

In its statement, the Paris-based organization warned that “about half” of the journalists killed were not working at the time of the attack.

“Thus, the trend of recent years has been sustained, meaning that there is no safe place for journalists, even in their free time,” the memo emphasizes.

UNESCO states that these have been liquidated to report organized crime, rising extremism, corruption, or crimes against the environment.

The number of journalists killed in conflict countries has also increased from 20 to 23 in one year in 2022. In Ukraine, which Russia invaded in February, 10 people were killed last year.

The organization recalled that 86% of the killings of media personnel remained unpunished, pointing to other forms of “violence” such as kidnappings, enforced disappearances and digital violence.
