According to sources in Pakistan, “Khan, a photographer for the Urdu-language paper Ummat, died from injuries he sustained from a bomb that exploded 30 minutes after another blast outside a Shia site in Karachi.”

Many journalist advocate organizations, including The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) joined its affiliate, the Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ), in condemning the results.

As a consolation, there has been some good news.  Whether from design or coincidence, there has been less photographers dead this year.  So far, there has been a reduction of 58% in photographer deaths.  Also, there hasn’t been any reported incidents from Russia, according to CPJ.
