Safety advice for journalists in Iraq

With the situation deteriorating in Iraq, INSI experts have put together a safety briefing for journalists covering the conflict.

Iraq is one of the world’s most dangerous places for journalists and the security situation is changing on a daily basis. Kidnapping, bombs, targeted killings and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are still a daily threat throughout the country and all out military conflict is now a real possibility between the Iraqi military, Shia militia groups and Sunni militants from ISIS.

If you are heading to Iraq or already there, this INSI briefing tells you what you need to know in order to stay safe.
