      Fewer Journalists Killed, More Jailed in 2002

      NEW YORK (Reuters) - The number of journalists killed in the line of duty
      fell to a 17-year low in 2002 but the number imprisoned rose for the
      second year in a row, an international media watchdog group said on
      Sunday.

      Nineteen journalists died around the world last year while carrying out
      their jobs, including three each in Colombia, Russia and the Palestinian
      West Bank, according to the New York-based Committee to Protect
      Journalists.

      That was down sharply from 2001 -- when 37 were killed, including eight in
      Afghanistan alone -- and the lowest number to die as a result of their
      work since the group began tracking the annual death toll in 1985.
