The authorities in Santa Lucía del Camino, in the Southern State of Oaxaca, have identified three people as suspects in the fatal shooting of US cameraman Brad Will on 27 October. They are municipal policeman Juan Carlos Soriano (on the left in the photo, in a red T-shirt and holding an automatic firearm), municipal personnel chief Manuel Aguilar (centre), public security director Abel Santiago Zárate (right) and a member of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), which controls the state government, and Pedro Caramona, a former paramilitary. The four men are alleged to have fired on a street barricade manned by protesting teachers and members of the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO), who have been staging protests for the past five months in support of demands for the resignation of Oaxaca state governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz. Will, 36, was filming at the barricade when he was fatally shot in the chest. Several Santa Lucia del Camino residents formally identified the three officials. The municipal authorities confirmed that they are suspected of firing the shots. Indymedia said Aguilar, Zárate and Carmona, had been arrested. A fifth person was also reportedly involved in the Will killing.Brad Will’s last video (link): – US cameraman killed and photographer wounded in Oaxaca police shootingReporters Without Border said today it was deeply shocked at the death of US cameraman Brad Will, of the US news agency Indymedia, during a violent police crackdown on a demonstration by teachers in the southern state of Oaxaca yesterday. Photographer Osvaldo Ramírez, of the daily paper Milenio, was also shot in the leg. Receive email alerts News Follow the news on Mexico Reports to go further The worldwide press freedom organisation called for Oaxaca state governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz, whose resignation the demonstrators were calling for and who last year had the daily Noticias de Oaxaca closed down for nearly six months, to be summoned before the new prosecutor’s office dealing with attacks on press freedom. It also urged federal authorities to investigate him and the Oaxaca municipal police, which it said had become a militia used by local officials. “We are horrified by this escalation of violence,” it said. “The mood of revolt in Oaxaca must end.”Will (whose real name is Wheyler), was shot dead with a bullet in his chest while reporting on a protest in front of the town hall of Santa Lucia del Camino (15 km from Oaxaca city) by the Oaxaca People’s Assembly (APPO), which groups 70,000 teachers and social workers, when police and agents of the governor opened fire on a barricade built by the demonstrators.A dozen clashes occurred in the town and nearby during which two other people were killed. Five protesters were killed during earlier demonstrations in recent days by APPO, which is calling for pay increases. Oaxaca, one of Mexico’s poorer states, has been in turmoil for more than a year. The teachers’ protests began on 22 May and since 14 June they have demanded Governor Ruiz Ortiz’ dismissal.

Video: Watch All of Lionel Messi’s 86 Goals in 2012

first_imgWith 86 goals to his name in 2012, Lionel Messi is now “supernatural.” Just ask one of his teammates.Messi scored twice more over the weekend in FC Barcelona’s 2-1 victory over Real Betis in Spain’s La Liga. The goals gaveMessi 86 in the 2012 calendar year, an all-time record.All 86 goals are available for your viewing pleasure in the video above. Consider it our Monday morning gift to you. Enjoy.With so many goals to show, the video clocks in at more than 10 minutes. So we figured we would also toss in this link, which is basically a shorter demonstration of La Pulga’s genius. Eat your heart out, Kobe.Now, back to the record. German legend Gerd Müller set the record 40 years ago, and if recent form is any indication, the new record probably won’t last that long. At just 25, Messi hasn’t even reached his prime.In fact, it’s almost like he’s supernatural, according to Barcelona defender Gerard Pique. From The Independent:“Leo is supernatural,” he said. “He has no limits and we always have to remember everything that he’s given us. We have to enjoy him every single minute that we have him now.”Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta echoed those sentiments, suggesting Messi’s true genius can only be appreciated “over time.”“I’m sure we will really appreciate Leo’s records over time,” he said. “They happen so quickly that they seem to be just one more thing. It all seems very simple but it’s very difficult to describe it.”last_img read more

Powered by Firework Aussie opener David Warner picked Rohit Sharma as his favourite to break Brian Lara’s record 400 runs in the longest format of the game. Warner himself was on the verge to break that record when Australia captain Tim Paine decided to declare as the left-handed opener remained not out on 335 in the ongoing second Test against Pakistan at Adelaide.Advertisement “I think, one day, if I’ve to name a player, I reckon it could be Rohit Sharma. Definitely,” David Warner told Fox Sports.Advertisement Sharma who impressed the fans in his first match as an opener with two centuries, helped his side thrash South Africa in their series opener and followed it up with his maiden Test double-century in the third match of the series. One of the most destructive batters in the world in limited formats, Rohit has already established himself as one of the core players in Indian squad.Meanwhile, Warner confessed that it was former Indian opener Virender Sehwag who made him rethink about his career in Test cricket.Advertisement The swashbuckling batsman made a name for himself early in his career as an explosive T20 batsman; but during his tenure at Delhi Daredevils, Sehwag asked Warner to play more red ball cricket and suggested that his performance would get better in Tests than in the shorter formats.“When I met Virender Sehwag while playing for Delhi in the IPL, he sat down to me and said I will be a better Test player than a Twenty 20 player,” Warner said.“(Sehwag) always said to me: ‘What, they have some slips and a gully. Cover is open, mid-wicket is just there and mid-off and mid-on are up. You just play your way and you will get off to a flyer and sit there all day and pick them off’.”“It’s always just sat in the back of my mind. It sounded very easy when we were discussing that,” Warner revealed.Read Also:Virat Kohli: Let Rohit Sharma have fun in testsWatch: David Warner’s hilarious response to an English fan calling him cheatIndia overtakes Australia as most successful chasing side in T20 history Advertisementlast_img read more
