Two Teenage Radio Announcers Murdered in Oxaca

Two young female radio announcers who worked for a local community radio station were ambushed and murdered along with a few others who were injured. The two women seem to have been leaving the radio station when they were gunned down. The radio station, who's tag line is, The Voice that Breaks the Silence" operated in support of the local indigenous people. The station only began airing in January and operates in the face of ongoing persecution of community radio (and media in general, including past murders) that seeks to support local indigenous people against government oppression.
