It said the killing in October shows «how far some people will go to silence ‘troublesome’ journalists.» The deadliest country for reporters in 2018 was Afghanistan, where 15 died in violent attacks such as bombings, followed by Syria with 11 and Mexico with nine

Media freedom group Reporters Without Borders said Tuesday it has recorded an increase in the number of journalists killed and imprisoned worldwide so far this year. A bright spot was Iraq, where no media deaths were reported so far in 2018, for the first time since 2003.

The Paris-based group, also known by its French acronym RSF, said 63 journalists died in relation to their jobs from Jan. 1 to Dec. 1, 2018, compared to 55 in 2017, 영광출장안마 as well as four media workers. Another 13 people it described as «non-professional journalists» — people who didn’t have official media cards but who were involved in the production of news and information — also died, while 348 were held in detention around the world.

«Non-professional journalists play a fundamental role in the production of news and information in countries with oppressive regimes and countries at war, where it is hard for professional journalists to operate,» the group said in the report.

Of the 80 people in total listed as killed, the group determined 49 were deliberately targeted «because their reporting threatened the interests of certain people in positions of political, economic, or religious power or organized crime.» The other 31 died in the field while reporting, the group said, adding that the group was investigating a further 10 deaths to determine whether they were related to journalism.

«Violence against journalists has reached unprecedented levels this year, and the situation is now critical,» Christophe Deloire, the group’s secretary general said. «The hatred of journalists that is voiced, and sometimes very openly proclaimed, by unscrupulous politicians, religious leaders and businessmen has tragic consequences on the ground, and has been reflected in this disturbing increase in violations against journalists.»

The group highlights the case of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed in Istanbul. It said the killing in October shows «how far some people will go to silence ‘troublesome’ journalists.»

The deadliest country for reporters in 2018 was Afghanistan, where 15 died in violent attacks such as bombings, followed by Syria with 11 and Mexico with nine. The U.S. made it into the top five deadliest countries for journalists this year for the first time, with six dying, including four who were among five people killed by a gunman who opened fire in the offices of Maryland newspaper Capital Gazette. Another two died while covering extreme weather.

MSF listed China as the biggest jailer, holding 60 people, 46 of them described as non-professional journalists «who have tried to compensate for the Communist Party’s increasingly tight control on the traditional media.» Ten of those, the group said, were in danger of dying in Chinese prisons.

Turkey was the world’s biggest jailer of professional journalists in 2018, according to the report, holding 33 of the total 179 being held in detention worldwide. In Egypt, 30 of the 38 journalists being held were still awaiting trial, the group said, including one who has already been held for more than three years without being officially charged.

«We won’t be considering any changes to our decision until the FDA and CDC conclude their investigation,» Taco Bell spokesman Rob Poetsch said

Over the weekend, Taco Bell officials said they determined that scallions were the likely source of the bacteria. But follow-up federal testing of those samples were negative for E. coli.

«In that context, we have not ruled out any food items,» said Dr. David Acheson, chief medical officer for the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.

Health officials in New York said a sample of white onions taken from a Taco Bell restaurant tested positive for E. coli. However, that strain of bacteria hasn’t been linked to any cases of illness in the United States anytime in the previous 30 days. The positive sample initially was mistakenly identified as being green onion, Acheson said.

«The bigger possibility is that these white onions were contaminated somewhere else, the supplier or the grower. We don’t know that,» Acheson said. «It does not match any strain of any illnesses in the past 30 days.»

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed 64 E. coli cases in five states, most in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania plus two in Delaware and one in South Carolina. The South Carolina patient had eaten at a Pennsylvania Taco Bell.

A New York City resident fell ill after eating at Taco Bell and health officials confirmed that E. coli was the culprit. The victim, identified only as a Staten Island resident, has since made a full recovery. This was the first time the strain was found in the city.

Meanwhile, nearly three dozen people have fallen ill with symptoms consistent with E. coli infection after eating at a Taco John’s restaurant in Cedar Falls, 양산출장안마 Iowa. And authorities were investigating a case in which several people became ill after eating at a Taco John’s in Albert Lea, Minn.

Kirk Smith, with the Minnesota Department of Health, said tests were being conducted to determine whether the illnesses were related to illnesses in Iowa.

Three Minnesotans with the symptoms are ages 17, 35 and 57, the Star Tribune of Minneapolis reported on its Web site Monday. The oldest person has developed a kidney complication and is hospitalized, the newspaper said.

Paul Fisherkeller, president of the Cheyenne, Wyo.-based Taco John’s, said in a statement, «We hope for the speedy recovery of anyone who has fallen ill and are cooperating fully with health departments in both states, while also conducting our own investigation.»

There is no indication the outbreaks at the two taco chains are linked, but the CDC has not ruled out a connection, said Dr. Christopher Braden, a medical epidemiologist with the agency. Iowa officials suspect a sick restaurant worker could have spread the illness. The two restaurant chains are not related.

It could take until midweek to determine if the Taco Bell outbreak is over, Braden said. However, there have been no reports of anyone falling ill after Dec. 2, he added.

Taco Bell continued to exclude scallions from its ingredient list despite the FDA’s finding. «We won’t be considering any changes to our decision until the FDA and CDC conclude their investigation,» Taco Bell spokesman Rob Poetsch said.

Taco Bell President Greg Creed said that independent testing on ingredients served in the chain’s restaurants did not indicate the presence of E. coli bacteria.

«As nearly half the entire U.S. adult population eats at a Taco Bell at least once a month, it’s easy to understand how we might be considered associated with this illness,» Creed said in a statement issued from Irvine, Calif., where the subsidiary of Yum Brands Inc. is located.

«Based on this testing and all that we know today, I can reassure you that all Taco Bell food is safe and strict standards are being upheld at all of our restaurants,» he said.

E. coli is a common and ordinarily harmless bacteria, but certain strains can cause abdominal cramps, fever, bloody diarrhea, kidney failure, blindness, paralysis, even death.

It is found in the feces of humans and livestock. E. coli infections are associated with undercooked meat. The bacteria also can be found on sprouts and leafy vegetables. The germs can be spread by people if they do not thoroughly wash their hands after using the restroom.

He is not a political case.» Richardson expressed the hope that the issue would be dealt with swiftly

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson told journalists in Havana that while he was here on a trade mission for his state, he also raised the case of imprisoned USAID contractor 성남출장안마 Alan Gross with Cuban authorities.

【 울산출장안마】℡070-7575-0077 카톡:SZX77Gross has been jailed since December for bringing illegal satellite equipment to dissidents in Cuba.

«Knowing I was taking a trip to Cuba on a trade mission, the Obama administration asked me to raise the case of Alan Gross. I did so with various high level officials,’ Richardson said during a press conference.

«I have been told it’s in a sensitive investigative and legal process. I believe I made inroads and some progress in the case,» he said, but added, «I am not a negotiator for the administration. «The New Mexico governor also denied bringing any special message from the Obama administration to the Cuban government. Richardson, who secured the release of three prisoners from Cuba 10 years ago, pointed out that that effort took two visits before it was successful.

Richardson said he did «not expect to see Fidel Castro» but if he did he would raise the case with him.

The governor said that after his meeting with Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez, that he thought the Cuban government has a better understanding of who Alan Gross is. Richardson noted that he had met with Gross’ wife and his lawyer and said, ‘He’s a good man. He may have made some mistakes. He is innocent. Releasing him would be a humanitarian gesture. He is not a political case.»

Richardson expressed the hope that the issue would be dealt with swiftly.

He further described the current mood between the U.S. and Cuba as «very positive» although moving in «small steps.»

«The Obama administration deserves credit for taking positive steps too, such as proposed expansion of travel,» for Americans to the island, Richardson said.

Richardson also praised Cuba’s recent prisoner releases. «The Cuban government deserves credit for tripartite agreement between the Catholic Church and Spanish government on the release of 32 political prisoners and hopefully more will happen in days to come,» he said.

The Local Coordination Committees, an activist collective, also confirmed the airstrikes

BEIRUT — U.S.-led coalition warplanes carried out as many as 30 airstrikes overnight against Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants in and around the group’s de facto capital in northeastern Syria, activists said Sunday.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the strikes targeted ISIS positions in the city of Raqqa as well as the Division 17 air base, which the militants seized earlier this year from government forces.

The monitoring group, which relies on a network of activists inside Syria, reported at least 30 coalition strikes in all. The Local Coordination Committees, an activist collective, also confirmed the airstrikes. Neither group had casualty figures.

There was no immediate confirmation from the U.S. military.

More in The fight against ISIS

Raqqa has been the site of heavy bombardment by Syria government forces as well. Activists say 95 people, including many civilians, were killed in strikes there by Assad government air force bombings last week.

The American-led coalition began targeting ISIS in Syria in September, expanding an aerial campaign already hitting the extremist group in Iraq.

Meanwhile, Iraqi officials say two separate bombings have killed seven people in the capital Baghdad.

Police officials say a bomb exploded on Sunday near a small restaurant, killing four people and wounding nine others in northwestern Baghdad. A separate bomb blast near a wholesale fruit and grocery market killed three people and wounded 12 others in a southern Baghdad suburb.

Medical officials confirmed the casualties. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.

Iraq sees near-daily bombings and other attacks mainly targeting Shiite neighborhoods, security forces and Sunnis allied with the government. The attacks are often claimed by the Sunni extremist group ISIS, 강진출장안마 which seized much of northern and western Iraq in a summer offensive.
