Journalist Slain in Honduras

TEGUCIGALPA – Television reporter Luis Arturo Mondragon was gunned down by unknown assailants in the eastern city of Danli, bringing to nine the number of media professionals slain so far this year in Honduras, police said Tuesday.

The killing took place between 9:30 and 10:00 p.m. Monday, after Mondragon left the studios of Channel 19 television, according to police spokesman Leonel Sauceda.

Family members suggested the murder might be linked to personal disputes between Mondragon and several unnamed individuals in the region, the spokesman said.

The Honduran security minister, Oscar Alvarez, told the press in Tegucigalpa accusations of cattle theft and rape had been lodged against the murder victim and that Mondragon’s brother indicated he knows who masterminded the killing.

Regarding the lack of arrests in connection with the murders of eight reporters and a radio personality since January, Sauceda said a judge has issued arrest warrants for four suspects in one of the killings.

The spate of killings cannot be attributed to an organized effort to silence or intimidate the news media, Alvarez said. EFE
