Gunmen in Mexico killed a journalist in Veracruz and another was reported missing. The murder comes at a time when press freedom organizations label the country as one of the most dangerous for journalists.

Earlier this week, unknown gunmen shot and killed Pedro Pablo Kumul Amaya, a multimedia reporter with AX Multimedios in Veracruz. While authorities have not released any information about the case, according to Proceso, the murder took place when Kumul Amaya was driving a taxi as a side job in Xalapa.
