The reduction of risks for media coverage in a safe manner, the Committee to Protect Journalists released a security guide for journalists

New York, April 26 -2012 - hundreds of journalists have faced a year of attacks, detention, threats or they are placed under watch, The CPJ issued a security guide for reporters to help them to assess the risks and avoid them.
This Guide was prepared by interactive experts from the Committee to Protect Journalists, which provides a general plan for local and international journalists from all levels of expertise to carry out concrete steps in order to ensure their physical and digital security. Among the core topics covered by the guide is to protect digital information, prepare to cover armed conflicts and the coverage of organized crime and corruption, and reduce the risk of sexual violence.
Frank Smith , an advanced consultant in the Committee to Protect Journalists, a specialist in the security of journalists ,and leading author of the reports said that the journalists are covering now the news in a world of increasing risks, and working in environments where journalists are subjected to murder and assassination of which perpetrators remain free ." In addition, the Committee to Protect Journalists launched a blog of the security of journalists managed by Frank Smith. Smith who says, " The media coverage of corruption and the abuse of power are more dangerous than covering fighting operations in many countries. In this climate, journalists must know how to protect their information and their sources and themselves and their families.
The prospect of targeting journalists is the great danger they are facing now. On average, 30 journalists are killed each year around the world according to the research of the CPJ, and the perpetrators escape from justice in the most of cases. The local journalists are more subjected to risk .Particularly, the journalists who cover issues of politics, corruption, crime and armed conflicts are subjected to the risks of attacks and prison. Furthermore, about 50 journalists told CPJ in the course of preparing a report of attacks on the media in 2011, that they had been sexually assaulted during their journalistic tasks.
