Two journalists attacked in Cuernavaca, say reports
A complaint has been filed with the Cuernavaca Office of the Public Ministry (Ministerio PÃºblico) accusing the police officers of abuse of authority, illegal detention and assault, but the release from CENCOS says that the organization has not managed to contact the journalists directly and relying on reports in the newspaper “La Jornada de Morelos”.
The newspaper reported that Lopez was beaten and sustained injuries to his arms, legs, backs and hands and that the attack was witness by three people – MarÃa Arrieta Sotelo, RocÃo RamÃrez and Javier Emanuel Nocelo RamÃrez.
The event was announced by the State of Morelosâ€™ Independent Human Rights Commission, which has also called for an investigation into the alleged attack.
