Eleven of those 57 reporters were killed in Pakistan, the highest and most dangerous place for reporters to go.
According to news.com.au
, the tally is actually good news because it decreased from 2009 by 25 percent. However, the kidnapping of reporters increased by 18 cases since last year.
The Committee to Protect Journalists aims to look after journalists in all parts of the world, however due to the job being so dangerous, many people are in a high risk of danger either for murder or kidnapping.
They are sometimes the main target because of the fact that they find information and spread it all around the world, mostly information that does not wish to be leaked out.
