Viktoria Marinova, a Bulgarian journalist, was found raped and murdered in a park on Saturday. The television presenter had recently covered a story about the suspected misuse of EU funds by businesses. The 30-year-old is the third journalist to have been murdered in Europe in the past year, following other fatal attacks on investigative reporters in Malta and Slovakia.
The killings have led campaigners to warn that press freedom on the continent is in danger, as journalists face growing threats, intimidation and violence, in Europe and around the world.
