Mexico: Fear for safety / Death threats
Journalists Gonzalo Dominguez Monroy (m), Felipe Ramos Cruz (m) and Carlos Dominguez Monroy (m) and others working for El Imparcial del Istmo newspaper in Oaxaca have been receiving death threats, apparently as a result of the newspaper's coverage of a drug-trafficking gang's activities in the state. After their colleagues Mateo Cortés Martínez (m), Flor Vásquez López (f) and Agustín López Nolasco (m) were shot dead earlier during the week beginning 8 October 2007, Amnesty International is deeply concerned for the safety of other workers at the same newspaper.
