Unidentified assailants gunned down broadcast reporter
Noriega in San Juan Pueblo, 215 miles (350 kilometers) north of the
capital, Tegucigalpa,
as he was leaving the offices of Estelar Radio at around 5 p.m., police
spokesman César Wilfredo Ardón told CPJ.

Noriega was shot multiple times, Ardón said, and died en
route to a local hospital.

The journalist reported on general news, according to local
press reports. Police had no immediate suspects but were considering journalism
as a possible motive, Ardón said.
