I condemn the killing of Wilder Alfredo Córdoba. Local media, like the one Mr Cordoba directed, shine a light on local conditions and deserve all the protection they need to carry out their work. I call on the authorities to investigate this crime and bring its perpetrators to justice.Audrey Azoulay
Córdoba, director of local television channel Unión TV, was shot by unknown assailants while travelling on a country road.
