MARRAKESH, November 28. /TASS/. The president of International Federation of Journalists, Jim Boumelha, called on Friday to increase the protection of reporters in the zones of conflicts and armed actions.

Speaking at the 2nd World Human Rights Forum in Marrakesh, Morocco, Boumelha said “that the cases of violence against journalists, primarily on the part of terrorist groups, have been on the rise.”

The International Criminal Court's chief prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, said “impunity and violence still rule in a number of the world’s regions.”

“The international community should support the institutions and organizations protecting human rights in the interests of establishing justice on the world arena,” she stressed.

The forum in Marrakesh, held under the auspices of King of Morocco Mohammed VI, is attended by over 5,000 delegates and guests from more than 90 countries. The participants discuss a broad range of issues on human rights protection in political, social and economic, cultural and other spheres.
