In Mexico, was murdered journalist Javier Valdez cц?rdenas
On Monday in Sinaloa, was assassinated Mexican journalist Javier Valdez cц?rdenas, who wrote a lot about the drug trade. He is the fifth journalist to have been killed in Mexico this year.

The weekly Riodoce in which he worked, reported that he was shot. Valdes was a respected journalist in Sinaloa and has published several books about the drug trade, crime and its impact on communities.

Speaking on Monday at the scene of a crime in Culiacan, the Prosecutor of the state of Sinaloa Juan Jose Rios Estavillo promised that his Agency will provide more protection for journalists. According to the Committee to protect journalists, since 1992, in Mexico, 40 killed journalists. Mexican President Enrique peц?a Nieto expressed his condolences to the family and friends of Valdez. "I confirm our commitment to freedom of expression and of the press, which are fundamental to our democracy," said Nieto.

The Committee to protect journalists awarded Valdes in 2011 prize for freedom of the press. In September 2009 Riodoce published a series of articles about the drug trade. According to CPJ, in a few days, his office threw grenades.

Valdez also was a correspondent for La Jornada in Sinaloa and worked with the news Agency AFP.

"We mourn this tragedy and offer condolences to all the family of Javier and people close to him. We urge the Mexican authorities to shed light on this cowardly murder," - said in an official statement, Director General of the AFP, Michele Leridon.
