Newspaper Owner Gunned Down in Brazil

RIO DE JANEIRO – Two gunmen killed the owner and editor of a newspaper in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro, a member of the daily’s staff told Efe on Friday.

Panorama Regional owner Pedro Palma was shot Thursday night in the doorway of his home in Miguel Pereira, a city in the highlands of Rio de Janeiro, photographer Damião de Souza Carvalho said.

The assailants fired three shots and then fled on a motorcycle.

Palma “did not have any declared enemies,” Carvalho said, but the journalist had used his newspaper to denounce police misconduct in Miguel Pereira, a town of around 25,000 people 100 kilometers (60 miles) from Rio de Janeiro city.

Five journalists were murdered in Brazil last year, according to figures compiled by Reporters Without Borders.

Television cameraman Santiago Andrade died this week of injuries received when he was struck by a rocket-type firework while covering a protest in Rio de Janeiro.
