Map: Journalists Killed in Mexico

posted in: Editorial | 0

Mexico is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist, particularly since 2006, when President Felipe Calder√≥n’s decision to bring in the military to address the country’s drug war resulted in a dramatic increase in murder and violence.

Using data from the Committee to Protect Journalists I created this map, using Leaflet, showing the locations where, since 1994, journalists have been killed in Mexico.
