Kidnapped Journalist Found Dead


Another journalist has been killed in Mexico bringing to more than 200, the number of journalists killed in that country since 2000.

The police in Mexico found the burned remains the journalist who was kidnapped in May.

Salvador Adame, the head of a local TV station in the state of Michoacan, is the sixth reporter killed this year in the country.

According to state prosecutor, more than 90 per cent of these killings remain unpunished.

Adame, 44, was surrounded by gunmen and abducted in the western town of Nueva Italia on May 18.

Police and soldiers found his charred remains four weeks later, dumped at a spot known as “Devil’s Gully” along a local road, said state prosecutor Mr. Jose Martin Godoy.

“DNA samples have confirmed that these remains are those of Salvador Adame,” Godoy told a news conference.
