The bodies of journalists missing on the eve of Iraq were found today near Baakuba


It was possible to find and identify the bodies of the dead almost a day after the tragedy. Responsibility for undermining the car, in which the journalists moved, was taken over by the militants of the so-called "Islamic State". It must be recalled that responsibility for the terrorist attacks in Baghdad (hostage-taking in a shopping center) was also taken by the fighters DAISH (IG). At the same time, no statements on the network of Daesh (IG) regarding responsibility for today's terrorist act in the center of Istanbul (Turkey) will not be published.

In the profile committee of the United Nations (the committee on mass media) among the countries most dangerous for the work of journalists, in addition to Iraq they call Syria, Ukraine and Afghanistan. In these countries, over the past year and a half, more than 15 journalists from various media have died.

          Well done Syrians, maintaining a sense of humor in a similar situation costs a lot.

    Being a journalist on the battlefield is no less dangerous than attacking, but only Ukraine specifically directs its artillery on them.

      And even worse than going on the attack and being a journalist, this is when a journalist is “hooked” to you so that you carry him 2-3 of the day. “Lucky” a couple of times ... You’re not afraid for yourself, I’m sure of my boys. But with the journalist ... crying The guys are usually hot, they climb with their cameras where the dog ... does not stick. So you jump around him as you did not jump around your children. An experience of combat - at best - urgent service in communications near Ufa ... But I didn’t see any bastard among them - good guys, right ones. Most obey - say “sit” - sit, say “run” - run. And we quickly got used to the rules and special rules of our etiquette. laughing

    Truly work, they don’t even know whether they will live to see the evening or not. The reports are worth the price of life.

    What is interesting: in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, bandits kill journalists, and in Ukraine - government troops! hi Hence the logical conclusion about the Ukrainian government
