UN chief condemns attack on journalist

Agency. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has strongly condemned the attacks on journalists. He condemned the attack on the press and said that such attacks should be stopped immediately. He also demanded strict action against those who attacked and killed journalists.

A spokesman for Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Stefan Dujarric, said in a statement on Wednesday. He further added that impunity has increased due to the failure to take strict action against the person who killed the journalist.

According to the statement, 67 journalists were killed between 2018 and 2019, according to UNESCO figures. The killings were attributed to related incidents in the conflict-torn country.

According to UNESCO, 23 of them were killed while covering the war. "Some journalists have been killed while covering the war, while others have been killed in the name of war," Guterres said. - ANI
