Surge in anti-press violence reported in Brazil

Anti-press violence rose nearly threefold in Brazil in 2013 as reporters covered massive street protests over substandard public services and endemic corruption, a broadcast media report said Monday. "This is one of the most violent years for the press in this country," Daniel Slaviero, president of the Brazilian Association of Radio and Television Broadcasters (ABERT), said as he unveiled a report on the assaults against journalists. So far this year, five reporters have been killed in the country, compared with six in 2012, according to ABERT.
