Reporters Without Borders condemns the murder of a radio station director on 14 April in the south of Mexico, the western hemisphere’s deadliest country for journalists. The victim was Abel Manuel Bautista Raymundo, founder and director of Radio Espacio 96.1 FM in Juxtlahuaca (in Oaxaca state) and president of the Vara 7 Association of Radio Stations.

AMARC expresses its concern over the arrest of the director of Radio Horytna

The World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) expresses its grave concern over the arrest of Ahmed Samih, director of Radio Horytna and the Andalus Institute for Tolerance and Anti-violence Studies (AITAS), and the subsequent filing of charges that relate to the operation of Radio Horytna, Egypt's first Internet radio station. This appears to be politically motivated and intended to further stifle the freedom of expression in Egypt.
