Journalist Gunned Down in Northern Mexico

MEXICO CITY – A veteran journalist was fatally shot on Thursday as she left her home in Chihuahua, capital of the likenamed northern Mexican state, an official told EFE.

Miroslava Breach, 54, was killed at around 7 am, Chihuahua state Attorney General’s Office spokesman Eduardo Esparza said.

Several bullet casings were found at the scene, he said.

Breach, who spent 15 years as a correspondent for Mexico City-based newspaper La Jornada, was shot eight times and died en route to the hospital, the daily said.

The reporter was slain while sitting in her vehicle as she prepared to drive one of her three children to school, La Jornada said.

Breach is the second Mexican journalist gunned down in less than a week, following last Sunday’s killing of Ricardo Monlui Cabrera in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz.

The 57-year-old Monlui was the editor of El Politico newspaper and a columnist whose pieces were published in several different outlets.

Breach’s death brings to 123 the number of journalists murdered in Mexico since the year 2000, according to official statistics.
