MEXICO CITY: Attacks on journalists in Mexico have surged during President Enrique Pena Nieto’s first two years in power, with assaults reported every 26.7 hours, a press freedom group said on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila). Media workers endured an act of violence every 48.1 hours during the 2006-2012 presidency of Felipe Calderon, according to a report by Article 19. Since Pena Nieto took office in December 2012, 10 journalists have been murdered, possibly due to their work, while four others have vanished, and the crimes remain unsolved, the London-based organization said.
