Mexico is one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists. Reporter Dulcina Parra was kidnapped and barely escaped murder. She reports again and again on cases of corruption and the machinations of the powerful drug cartels.
The ruling, which does not allow for the sale of the drug, is now under review by a higher court at the government's request. The organization backing the case told DW it is a step toward ending the "war on drugs."
Two reporters were gunned down, while a third was found dead in the trunk of a car. Mexico is one of the most dangerous places in the world for journalists, with a majority of the murder cases going unsolved.
Fifty-six percent of Mexican territory is seen as dangerous for women. Finding a solution to the increasing violence is not easy, because there isn't a clear pattern to it, writes journalist Anabel Hernandez.
In Mexico, criminals do not fear the authorities, but journalists. That’s why journalists are the target of attacks, with eight dying so far this year. Protecting them is an international duty, says Anabel Hernandez
