IFEX (International Freedom of eXpression Exchange) reviews 2007 at the sharp end of journalism with differing figures from the Committee to Protect Journalists (65 journalists killed), Reporters without Borders (at least 86 journalists killed), the Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (102 journalists killed) and the International Federation of Journalists (171 journalists and media workers were killed). Whatever the accuracy of the figures, the trend is the same across all organisations and 2007 will stand as one of the deadliest years for journalists.
