Twenty-six journalists were killed around the world last year in the course of their work, with India and Colombia the most dangerous countries. The annual report by Reporters without Borders and the Committee to Protect Journalists said it marked the third consecutive drop after an especially deadly 1994, in which 103 journalists were killed.

Seven journalists died in India last year, four in Colombia, three in Mexico, and two in Cambodia. For the first time since 1993, no journalist was killed in Algeria, despite worsening civil strife. - Reuters, Paris
