MOSCOW, December 31. /TASS/. The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) on Wednesday said Pakistan where 14 journalists were killed in 2014 is the most dangerous country for media work.

Pakistan is followed by Syria where 12 media workers lost their lives to violence, the Brussels-based organization said.

"Afghanistan and Palestine recorded 9 killings each while eight journalists were killed in Iraq and Ukraine," the IFJ said in a statement.

"The Federation warns that these new figures are a reminder of the gravity of the safety crisis in media and renews its urgent call to governments to make the protection of journalists their priority," the IFJ said pointing to an increase of 13 killings from last year.
