Mexico news photographer found slain in capital

Mexico City, Aug 2: A Mexican investigative magazine is reporting that one of its collaborators is among five people found slain in an apartment in Mexico City.

The magazine Proceso says the body of photographer Ruben Espinosa, who had gone missing Friday, was identified by a family member yesterday afternoon.


He had two gunshot wounds, the magazine reported. Espinoza, who also collaborated with other media, had recently gone into self-exile from the Gulf coast state of Veracruz, where he felt under threat, according to Proceso.

The other victims were not identified. Veracruz has been a dangerous state for reporters.

The Committee to Protect Journalists reported in January it had confirmed four reporters had been killed because of their work since 2011, and was investigating the deaths of at least six others.
