Masked gunmen in Mexico have fired several shots and thrown a grenade at a television station as it broadcast its main evening news bulletin. No-one was injured in the attack on the Televisa network’s station in the northern city of Monterrey. A note was left nearby, reading “Stop just reporting on us, report on the narco’s political leaders” – an apparent reference to the Mexican government.
Since 2006, 15 journalists have been killed in Mexico and many local newspapers have stopped investigative reporting of the drugs cartels. This attack is believed to be the first on a Mexican TV station.
