Two Colombian journalists are killed and another person is injured after two motorcycle-riding assailants shot them in Fundación, Magdalena.
Two journalists were shot and killed in Colombia on Sunday by assailants on a motorcycle. The duo was returning from covering a carnival, police said. Both worked for a news website called Sol Digital based in the northern town of Fundacion on the Caribbean coast, and they were identified as Leiner Montero Ortega, 37, and Dilia Contreras Cantillo, 39, said Andres Serna, police chief in the department of Magdalena. Serna later convened an emergency meeting of police officials in Fundacion. The reporters were reportedly driving back to Fundacion from the town of Santa Rosa de Lima, where they had covered a street festival, when the attackers shot them, Serna said. He said another person was wounded, but it is unclear whether this persom was a journalist as well or a civilian.
Now this case is under police investigation.
