This should be a lesson for us to be more careful. Especially for those journalists and reporters. Yes it's your job to give us news but we should also consider our own safety. Because we're not sure, maybe one day we're going to regret all of these in the end.

I think it's so sad to see journalists being killed worldwide. It is definitely a murder of the journalists rights. I don't see it disappearing anytime soon though. As long as there are criminals, it will continue.
