Brazil: Radio Journalist Critical of Government Killed During Live Broadcast

1 post in this topic

Fox Latino:

A well-known radio journalist in Brazil who repeatedly denounced political corruption was gunned down Thursday in the middle of one of his broadcasts.

Gleydson Carvalho was a dogged journalist who had received death threats on Facebook.

Carvalho, police said, was in the middle of his broadcast in Camocim, in the state of Ceará, when two men showed up at the building to buy advertising space, according to the show’s technical operator, Ricardo Farias.

The ad inquiry, police say, was a ruse. Once the men were allowed into the building, one of them forced his way into the Carvalho’s booth and ambushed him.
