Mexico, The vast majority of crimes against journalists in Mexico remain unpunished, La Jornada reported today.

The newspaper condemned the murder of one of its correspondent occurred yesterday in Culiacan, state of Sinaloa.

The text states that more than 120 reporters from 2000 to date were murdered in Mexico.

In most of cases, the mastermind and perpetrators of those crimes have not even been identified, or tried and punished according to law, the publication emphasizes.

Killing a journalist, a woman, a human rights activist, any citizen, has become a very low-risk activity because, according to all evidence, in the state and federal government bodies, the determination to do justice is merely declaratory, the publication says.

Miroslava Breach, a correspondent of La Jornada in Chihuahua, was shot dead on March 23rd in front of her son.

About six Mexican journalists have lost their lives violently so far this year.

Protests for the death of Javier Valdes and other professionals of the press occurred yesterday in this capital and other cities of the country.

President Enrique Peña Nieto convened an emergency meeting today with all the country's governors to analyze the insecurity and violence that affects the communicators.
