18th Journalist Killed in Honduras

A journalist was killed this past weekend in Honduras, bringing the number of media personnel murdered in the country over the past two years to a total of eighteen. 54-year-old Fausto Evelio Valle, from Olanchito, Yoro, was an announcer for Radio Alegre in Sabá, Colón for sixteen years. He was presenter of the news program “La Voz de la Notícia”.

Fausto Evelio was hacked to death with machetes by several subjects who intercepted him on his bicycle ride home late Saturday night. Witnesses did not identify his attackers, and his death did not appear to be a robbery.
