A report from the nonprofit Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has found out that the number of journalists jailed worldwide was recorded to be at a global high in 2021. The report further found that at least 293 reporters were imprisoned as of December 1 this year, said news agency Reuters. According to the CPJ’s annual survey on press freedom and attacks on the media, 24 journalists were killed because of their coverage and 18 others died in circumstances that make it too difficult to determine whether they were targeted because of their work.
