Iraq media death toll tops 160

More than 160 journalists and other media workers have been killed in Iraq since the beginning of the conflict in 2003.The International Federation of Journalists has called on the United Nations Security Council to help tackle the "crisis" facing journalists working in Iraq.
"We need more safety training, better equipment to protect media staff at work and more humanitarian aid," said the IFJ's general secretary Aidan White. "But most of all we need political will to bring an end to the targeting and killing of media people."
