In Mexico, veteran radio host Jesús Eugenio Ramos Rodríguez was shot and killed Saturday, making him the second Mexican journalist to be murdered this year. Authorities in the state of Tabasco are investigating the murder, and the government has repeated its commitment to strengthen protections for journalists. This is Alfredo Naranjo, a colleague of the murdered reporter, speaking at his funeral.

Alfredo Naranjo: “This is not a bullet at Jesús Ramos, but at freedom of expression. What is happening is at the heart of Mexico.”
