Colombia: media men shot dead in the north

Two Colombian journalists were shot dead on Sunday in the north of the country by people riding motorbikes as they returned from reporting on a popular party in the Colombian Caribbean, local media reported

Leiner Montero Ortega, 37, and Dilia Contreras Cantillo, 39, were driving on a road between cities of El Copey and Fundacion when they were approached “by two criminals on motorcycles who shot with a gun,” said Colonel Andres Serna, police commander of the Magdalena department.

The two journalists worked for a website, Sol Digital, located at Fundacion.

“The attack also left one injured who is receiving medical treatment,” said Andres Serna, who did not specify whether the injured person is also a journalist.
