Mexican journalist kidnapped, slain

Tijuana (Mexico), Oct 16, 2012, (IANS/EFE):

A journalist was abducted and murdered Monday in this Mexican border town, authorities said.

Ramon Abel Lopez Aguilar, 53, was a photographer and editor of the news Web site Tijuana Informativo.

His body was found on a street in Tijuana just hours after he was snatched from his home in the city's Guaycura neighbourhood, the Baja California state Attorney General's Office said.
Lopez Aguilar died of a single gunshot wound to the head, according to the official statement.

The body was identified by the victim's family, who had called police earlier to report the pre-dawn kidnapping.

Around 80 news professionals have been murdered in Mexico since 2000, earning the country the dubious distinction of being one of the world's most dangerous places for journalists.
