7:09 pm
sets aside today that's november the 2nd is a day to draw attention to the low global conviction rate for murders and violent crimes committed against journalists that is thought that between 20062018 more than a 1000 reporters and other media workers were killed around the world unesco says almost all murders involving media go unpunished syria is one of the most dangerous countries to be a journalist at least 144 people have been killed since the start of the war in 2011 and these are figures coming from the committee to protect jan this now is big to barbara triomphe who is the executive director of the international press institute she's joining us now from vienna thanks for talking to us and he stands to reason doesn't it conflict is or often lethal it stands to reason that syria is the most dangerous place in the world for journalists to operate so we shouldn't really be surprised by that. indeed conclave either
7:10 pm
a very dangerous place but what we have seen in the past that is that even in complex situation join the list are not only caught in a crossfire but they are directly targeted they're targeted because they're bringing out the news that bringing out information that the parties at war do not want to get revealed and that is a major problem that we have seen in the developments over the past decade if you want to. turn to the also we see a lot of killings of george anything countries that are not at war. the leading candidate sorry here the leading country in terms of join a list killed it's mexico with 9 joined a list serv murder because of their coverage of corruption so war is not the only reason why jonathan being killed right and so is also the environment that is being created in many parts of the world and when you've got a lot of social upheaval in particular thinking about this particular moment where
7:11 pm
you're seeing people taking to the streets in vast numbers around the world in order to protest against what they see as social injustice about against corruption and so on shouldn't it be there for expected that german this is ordinary members of society will be caught up in exactly the same phenomena that civilians are if you like. indeed i mean it's certainly we also see campaigns by certain political leaders against join the list the campaigns trying to discredit join the list trying to. pitch join a list as the enemies of the people the enemies of those people who are fighting for social justice well we will know then joining in itself is one of the strongest force has to keep those powerful to account however these campaigns also need to attacks to physical attacks and a perception that physical attacks against your analyst are legitimate and the
7:12 pm
right of problem and of course today is really to draw attention to the fact that those who carry out attacks against this are offered are rarely pursued a rarely held accountable the kind of impunity that surrounds it i'm just wondering whether the phenomenon of fake news and the position of journalists in society in the regard with which they're held generally is affecting the whole position if you like of of a germ this in society. certainly it is the phenomena of fake news and the defeater to distinguish clearly between what is properly giornale which is accurate fairly report that information and what is other information being posted on social media which has nothing to do with you want to listen and which is what is commonly defined as this information is is a major problem and it it has challenge to credibility or jordan is and also in insight that hatred against jordan is but as you mentioned today we celebrate the
7:13 pm
day and team puny international day to end impunity so basically the fact that the joint is not only there are attacked they are killed but the perpetrators of these type of attacks are never almost never brought to justice almost 90 if over 95 percent of the killings are remain. are are unpunished sort of perpetrators never come in front of a court or end up in prison and that's a consequence of a lack of political will yeah ok thank you very good to talk to you as ever barbara triomphe be talking to us live from vienna thank you thank you very much less severe flooding across large parts of somalia has left more than a quarter of a 1000000 people in search of shelter and it could get even worse aid agencies say at least 10 people have died already in the town of belad wainer that's west of the capital mogadishu and 270000 people have been displaced with large parts of central
