Journalists targeted

"Truth is not killed by killing journalists"

The government of Porfirio Lobo offered a financial reward to those who can give information about any of the five murders of the journalists that occurred in March. Several of these journalists were also members of the National Front of Popular Resistance, which shows that there is persecution of those opposing the coup. Journalists feel helpless in the current political instability to be able to perform their jobs.
