And journalists across Mexico are gathering today to commemorate the one-month anniversary of the killing of award-winning reporter Javier Valdez, who was dragged out of his car and shot 12 times in Culiacán, Sinaloa, on May 15. Valdez founded a newspaper in Sinaloa and also wrote for La Jornada. He was at least the sixth Mexican journalist to be killed this year amid a surge of violence against media workers in Mexico.
