veracruz11London, 10 February 2016

 PEN International has expressed its outrage at the news that yet another journalist has been found dead in Mexico.

Once again the world and the Mexican people stand in horror at the killing of another journalist. The Mexican government must put an end to the impunity that exists for crimes against journalists, which makes a sham of democracy,’ said Jennifer Clement, President of PEN International.

According to reports, the body of Anabel Flores Salazar, a reporter for El Sol de Orizaba, was found yesterday in the state of Puebla, adjacent to Flores’ home state of Veracruz. She had been abducted from her home on Monday by armed men.
