Dangerous job Press freedom under threat

May 3 is International Press Freedom Day. It serves as a reminder of the dangers journalists face in some parts of the world. Attacked, harassed, thrown into jail or even killed, they also pay a heavy toll in a violent world.

Each year the non-governmental Reporters Without Borders publishes a booklet entitled "100 photos for press freedom". This year, ten of the world's most dangerous places are also listed.
