The Newseum in Washington is adding 94 names to its journalists memorial, honoring newspeople who died on assignment last year and from six previous years.

Of the 88 journalists killed in 2009, 33 died in the Philippines. It was the deadliest country for journalists last year.

On Nov. 23, 30 Filipino journalists were killed when a convoy of vehicles carrying journalists, relatives and supporters filing election papers for a gubernatorial candidate was attacked.

It was the largest slaughter of journalists in a single day. Their bodies were found in mass graves.

Christiane Amanpour, who is leaving CNN to anchor ABC News' "This Week" program on Sundays, honored the slain journalists Monday. The show is broadcast from the journalism and free speech museum.
