HeadlineMar 26, 2019

In the Mexican state of Sinaloa, local radio sports journalist Omar Iván Camacho was found dead in an apparent homicide Sunday, making him at least the fifth reporter to be killed in the country so far this year. Protesters gathered to call for justice for the slain journalist. This is fellow reporter and activist Alejandro Sicairos.

Alejandro Sicairos: “While there is insecurity, we are at a high risk, not just from criminals who attack us, but also from authorities who don’t do their job, and when there is a great indifference to journalists.”
