The United Nations Security Council on Wednesday condemned the frequent attacks against journalists worldwide and demanded an end to the impunity enjoyed by those guilty of violent crimes against members of the press. The appeal came in the form of a unanimously adopted resolution that also called for the release of all media professionals "who have been kidnapped or taken as hostages, in situations of armed conflict." Press freedom watchdog Reporters Without Borders says 66 reporters were killed in 2014, 25 since the start of this year, and more than 700 over the past decade. Many members of the council and other U.N. member states cited the beheadings of Western journalists by Islamic State militants, who have seized large swaths of Syria and Iraq, as among the most heinous examples of violence against reporters.
