As many as 85 journalists were shot dead worldwide last year and 17 died in bomb blasts, a new report by the UK-based International News Safety Institute (INSI) has revealed.

Syria was the most dangerous country for journalists for the second consecutive year, while Iraq, Philippines, Pakistan and India were among the countries most unsafe for reporters.
