The killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October generated days of international headlines. Unfortunately, when journalists are killed for their work their deaths rarely attract such attention.
On this edition of Global Journalist, a look at the targeted killings of two investigative journalists in European democracies. At the time of their deaths, Slovakia's Ján Kuciak and Malta's Daphne Caruana Galizia were probing government corruption and the influence of Italian organized crime families in their respective countries. In both cases, justice has been slow in coming.
Yet if the intention of those who killed Kuciak and Galizia was to halt their reporting, that effort failed. In both cases, journalists from a number of media outlets organized to continue the work of their slain colleagues.
