Mexico: Journalist Carlos Domínguez Rodríguez Murdered in Nuevo Laredo

HeadlineJan 16, 2018

In Mexico, longtime journalist Carlos Domínguez Rodríguez was murdered in the border town of Nuevo Laredo on Saturday, in the first murder of a media worker in Mexico this year. He was an independent journalist who, in one of his final columns for the online outlet Noreste Digital, wrote about the growing political violence ahead of Mexico’s presidential elections in July. Reporters Without Borders says Domínguez was dragged from his car by masked men and stabbed to death in broad daylight. Last year Mexico was among the deadliest countries in the world for journalists.
