AZG Armenian Daily
The Iraqi war that burst out in 2003 has set a sad record. Two
journalists of the CBS TV Company were killed on Monday raising the
death toll of journalists in the Iraqi war to 71.
According to ITAR-TASS, during the World War II the death toll of
journalists did not exceed 69.
The list of killed journalists in the Iraqi war prepared by the
Committee to Protect Journalist does not include those who fell victim
to accidents or diseases. ¾ of killed journalists in Iraq are locals.
The list also does not include such media workers as clerks,
interpreters, drivers etc.
