A journalist was shot to death last Wednesday in northeastern Mexico as he was leaving his house with his 23 year-old daughter, who was seriously injured.
Antonio de la Cruz, 47, was a reporter for the local newspaper Expreso for almost 3 decades.
His death brings to 12 the number of journalists killed this year in the country, the deadliest for the Mexican press.
De la Cruz was shot at the door of his house in Ciudad Victoria. The region is mired in violence linked to organized crime.
