Honduran Radio Journalist Killed

Honduran radio journalist Alfredo Villatoro was kidnapped and killed this past week. His body was discovered Tuesday night. CNN reports he was the 22 journalist killed in the country since 2010.

The English language website Honduras News reports President Porfirio Lobo Sosa has offered a financial reward for anyone who has information concerning Villatoro’s murder. He worked for National Radio Honduras.

Carlos Lauría, the Committee to Protect Journalists‘ senior program coordinator for the Americas, said the flow of news in Honduras is being restricted by “a climate of unrelenting hostility toward Honduran journalists.”

SPJ’s International Journalism Committee joins its professional colleagues worldwide in condemning Villatoro’s kidnapping and murder.
