Another Reporter Gunned Down in Mexico

MEXICO CITY – A television news anchor was fatally shot Monday in the northwestern coastal municipality of Playas de Rosarito, authorities in the Mexican state of Baja California said.

Luciano Rivera, who worked for CNR Channel 54, was killed at 1:40 am inside a bar, the state Attorney General’s Office said.

Rivera was chatting with two friends when several assailants approached him and one of them opened fire, witnesses said.

The attackers then jumped in a taxi headed for the nearby city of Tijuana.

Police subsequently intercepted the cab and arrested a suspect, identified only as Alfredo N, after finding a gun in the vehicle, the state AG Office said.

Besides his broadcast journalism, Rivera edited both the print and online editions of the magazine Dictamen.

Rivera’s death brings to nine the number of journalists slain this year in Mexico, regarded as one of the world’s most dangerous countries for news professionals.
