Jour­nal­ist and wife mur­dered

The Myanmar Times - - World -

A Gu­atemalan TV jour­nal­ist and his wife were mur­dered by gun­men who shot them as they rode a mo­tor­bike, po­lice said. Hamil­ton Her­nan­dez, a pre­sen­ter with a lo­cal ca­ble sta­tion, was rid­ing with his spouse Her­lina Gon­za­lez through a forested area near the town of Coate­peque, south­west of the cap­i­tal, when they were at­tacked. The mo­tives of the killings were not known, a po­lice spokesper­son said. A non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tion, Cen­tro Civ­i­tas, said it was the ninth mur­der of a jour­nal­ist in Guatemala this year. It called 2016 a “ter­ri­ble year” for the pro­fes­sion.
