Photojournalist’s death in Mexico City underscores the growing danger of being a journalist in Mexico

Journalists in Mexico are mourning the death of photojournalist Ruben Espinosa who was shot to death with four other women in Mexico City on Sunday. Espinosa had fled the state of Veracruz for Mexico City seeking security, and some say his death has shattered the idea that Mexico City could be a safe haven for journalists looking to escape violence in other states. Saul Ruiz, a photojournalist who works for Spanish newspaper El Pais, says: “It doesn’t matter what you cover anymore. You just have to hope that it doesn’t happen to you.”
