Media advocacy group Reporters Without Borders says 57 journalists were killed worldwide in 2010.

The deadliest country for journalists this year was Pakistan, where 11 reporters were killed in connection with their jobs.

Overall, the worldwide death toll is down 25 percent from 2009. But Reporters Without Borders says in its annual year-end report that kidnappings increased dramatically in 2010 to 51 cases, up from 33 in 2009.
