Freedom of expression and freedom of the press continue to be threatened worldwide. More than 800 journalists around the world were killed for bringing news and information to the public, over the past decade. The recent murders of Ján Kuciak and Daphne Caruana Galizia are a worrying sign that in some EU Member States, journalists' safety and media freedom is deteriorating. On World Press Freedom day, the EU reaffirms its determination to keep protecting and promoting freedom of opinion and of expression as rights to be exercised by everyone everywhere.
