CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) -- A crime reporter has been shot to death in the Mexican border city of Juarez, reigniting attacks on journalists as drug violence increases.
El Diario's Armando Rodriguez had covered crime for 10 years in Juarez. He was shot several times early Thursday as he sat in his car in front of his house. Police say they have no suspects or motive.
Mexico has become one of the world's most dangerous countries for journalists. Drug gangs routinely target reporters whose stories provide details of their activities.
Many reporters refuse to put their byline on stories, and some newspapers have stopped covering drug violence altogether.
