Two Iraqi journalists have been assassinated in the southern city of Basra, sparking fear among journalists across Iraq. Local television correspondent Ahmad Abdelsamad, and his cameraman Safaa Ghali, were killed in a drive-by shooting. Meanwhile, in Mexico, radio presenter Fidel Ávila Gómez was found dead in the state of Michoacán last week, marking the first murder of a journalist in Mexico this year. The Committee to Protect Journalists says Mexico is one of the world’s most dangerous countries for journalists, with more journalists murdered there last year than in any other country except Syria.
