The dangers of being a journalist in Pakistan

16 April 2014 Last updated at 11:01 BST

Syria has joined the list of countries where the murder of a journalist is most likely to go unpunished.

That is according to the Committee to Protect Journalists which has just released an Impunity Index - a list that aims to shine a light on countries where journalists are at most risk.

For years, Pakistan has been considered one of the most dangerous countries for the press - But according to the report there has been modest improvement, with the recent convictions of six people for the killing of a television journalist.

For many journalists, the risks still remain as Pakistan ranks tenth on the Impunity Index.
