In Mexico, the director of community radio station Radiokashana was found dead in Baja California Sunday—the first journalist to be killed in Mexico this year. Rafael Murúa Manríquez had reported receiving death threats and harassment after criticizing the mayor of Mulegé, Felipe Prado, and had been under federal protection. Journalism and free speech advocates are calling for an investigation into the killing.
