About 100 armed men attacked a group of journalists and robbed them of their equipment in Mexico’s troubled southern state of Guerrero, authorities and media reports said Sunday.
The newspaper La Jornada said two of its employees were among seven journalists accosted while covering a security operation in San Miguel Totolapan on Saturday.
They were traveling in two SUVs when they were intercepted by the gunmen and relieved of cameras, cellphones, personal effects and one of the vehicles.
The attackers roughed up some of the journalists and threatened to burn them and the SUVs before letting them leave in the second vehicle, La Jornada reported.
