Working in the news business involves a host of challenges, especially in regard to reporting from conflict zones and from – or about – countries or societies which do not allow for a free press. In some cases, reporters have become targets themselves, to murderous effect.

The readers of this newspaper are likely familiar with some of the extreme cases – the murder of Daniel Pearl in Pakistan in 2002; the killing of several reporters by Islamic extremists in Syria over the last few years; and the deadly Paris attack on Charlie Hebdo this past January.
