Two radio stations attacked in Quintana Roo

first_img MexicoAmericas October 31, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two radio stations attacked in Quintana Roo Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state to go further Reports Help by sharing this information Around 15 masked men armed with gasoline bombs overran two radio stations owned by a local politician in Felipe Carrillo Puerto, a town in the southeastern state of Quintana Roo, in the early hours of 28 October, destroying their transmission equipment.The assailants attacked the radio stations’ caretaker and his family and the two journalists on duty at the time, Vladimir Rimbón Bonora and Arturo García Landeros, who was injured by a machete blow. He is now recovering from his injuries. The two radio stations, La Estrella Maya que Habla and La FM Maya, are owned by Sebastián Uc Yam, until recently the town’s mayor. “We firmly condemn this attack and we hope the investigation launched by the Quintana Roo state prosecutor’s office will succeed in identifying those responsible,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the authorities to examine the possibility that the motive was linked to the two radio stations’ journalistic work and not automatically assume it was Sebastián Uc Yam’s political activities. The Special Attorney’s office for Crimes against Freedom of Expression (FEADLE) must take part in the investigations, and Reporters Without Borders calls on the government to guarantee the safety of the radio workers.”The police took more than an hour to get to the scene of the attack, accompanied by a few soldiers. La Estrella Maya que Habla presenter Hermelindo Martínez Cruz said it was not the first time the station had been attacked, adding that no investigation was carried out when he was kidnapped for a few hours in July 2012.Attacks on journalists in Mexico usually go unsolved and unpunished. With 88 journalists killed in the past decade, and 17 other disappeared, Mexico is one of the world’s most dangerous countries for the media.

Steelers offense sputters in second half against Ravens

first_imgPITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers can’t blame their latest loss on a struggling defense. The Steelers defense kept Baltimore out of the end zone in the second half, but Ben Roethlisberger and the offense struggled to find rhythm as Justin Tucker kicked four second-half field goals, leading the Ravens to a 26-14 victory on Sunday night.“I just didn’t make enough plays,” Roethlisberger said. “I’ll take ownership on this game. I just wasn’t good enough.”Roethlisberger led the offense from a 14-point hole and threw for 224 yards in the first half. The Steelers offense managed just 47 yards in the second half, and converted 2 of 12 third downs in the game as Roethlisberger finished 27 of 47 for 274 yards with a touchdown and an interception.“I didn’t make enough throws and we didn’t convert first downs,” Roethlisberger said. “We were terrible on third downs and that’s on me.”The Steeler defense allowed Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes to throw for six touchdowns in Week 2, while Tampa Bay’s Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for more than 400 yards last Monday.The Steelers (1-2-1) struggled defensively at the outset against Baltimore (3-1) as the Ravens held a 14-0 lead less than seven minutes into the game. They settled down and allowed four Tucker field goals the rest of the way, but it wasn’t enough.“We were able to tie it up at half and the score was 0-0 to me,” defensive end Cam Heyward said. “We didn’t get off the field and our offense didn’t score. When we do that and don’t get off the field, it’s not a good recipe for success.”Quarterback Joe Flacco completed 28 of 42 passes for 363 yards, with TD passes to John Brown and Alex Collins as the Ravens ended a three-game losing streak to their AFC North rivals. Tucker accounted for all the scoring after halftime as Baltimore ended Pittsburgh’s long run of success on Sunday nights.Pittsburgh came in having won nine straight Sunday night appearances, a streak that included a pair of victories against the Ravens. Baltimore brought Pittsburgh’s run to an abrupt end by shutting down Roethlisberger and the Steelers in the second half. The Ravens have allowed just nine points after halftime in four games.Roethlisberger threw for more than 500 yards and led four fourth-quarter scoring drives the last time the Steelers met the Ravens a Heinz Field. He tossed a memorable ball-over-the-goal-line extension touchdown to Antonio Brown that secured a division title for the Steelers on Christmas night in 2016.Flacco and the Ravens started strong on Sunday. Flacco completed his first six passes for 73 yards and two touchdowns, as he led the Ravens on an 8-play, 75-yard scoring drive and quickly capitalized on a Steelers’ turnover.Brown caught the Ravens’ first touchdown with Joe Haden and Cam Sutton giving chase on the 33-yard deep pass. Ravens’ S Tony Jefferson ripped the ball from tight end Vance McDonald’s grasp, and Flacco tossed a 3-yard swing pass to Collins three plays later.The Ravens looked like they were going to add to their lead following a Chris Boswell 34-yard field goal.Brown beat Terrell Edmunds on a 71-yard deep ball, but the Steelers’ rookie first-round pick recovered a Collins fumble on first-and-goal from the 2-yard line three plays later. It was the first time the Ravens didn’t score a touchdown in the red zone this season, going a league record 13-of-13 in four games.It also briefly swung momentum in Pittsburgh’s favor as Roethlisberger led the Steelers back from the early deficit.Antonio Brown, who caught five passes for 62 yards, scored his second touchdown in as many weeks following a Boswell 39-yard field goal. The 2-point conversion to James Conner evened the score.But then, Flacco and the Ravens took over.Tucker kicked a 47-yard field goal on the Ravens’ second possession of the second half, and then ended two clock-churning drives, spanning more than 11 plays and six minutes with field goals of 49 and 28 yards, increasing it to a 23-14 lead with less than four minutes to play.“They drained the clock on us,” Heyward said. “Whether it was quick passing on the outside or over the middle, we have to get better.”Tucker’s final field goal, a 31-yarder, came four plays after a Roethlisberger interception.“I don’t think I’m on the same page as anybody right now because I’m not playing well enough,” Roethlisberger said. “Today was just a bad day at the office. We’ve all had them. I had one today and I promise I’ll be back to play better.” Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) throws a pass in the first half of an NFL football game against the Baltimore Ravens in Pittsburgh, Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018.

Work-in-progress Leafs rally past Murdoch rival Castlegar 5-3

first_imgFor a team that just over a month ago didn’t have a coach, Leaf fans must feel pretty good after week one of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season.Nelson exploded for three goals in a span of 134 seconds to rally past the Castlegar Rebels 5-3 in KIJHL Murdoch Division action Saturday night at the NDCC Arena.The win, coupled with 3-3 tie Friday against Beaver Valley, lifts Nelson into sole possession of first place in Murdoch Division standings.“Anytime you get the first win at home you’ve got to be happy,” said Leaf skipper Dave McLellan following the gritty win that saw the Leafs twice rally from two-goal deficits.“It took a lot of contributions tonight . . .. Everyone’s working hard to get this going and it’s rewarding to get the win.”The start may be something McLellan would like to focus on during the next team meeting.Castlegar opened the scoring when Jeremy McNeill scored midway through the opening frame.Then before the period ended Yannis Soukas made it 2-0 with a power play goal. It took Nelson 32 minutes to solve Patrick Zubick in the Castlegar nets. Nolan Percival, the game’s first star, managed to get Nelson on the scoreboard with an even-strength marker.But Aaron Petten restored Castlegar’s two-goal lead, beating Brett Soles in the Leaf nets by converting a rebound.However, the Leafs once again cut the lead to a single goal when Aaron Dunlap scored on the power play by tapping in a loose puck to in the final seconds of the middle period.The goal came compliments of a lapse in judgment by Mike Bhatoa who took exception to a clean hit near the Castlegar bench, which led to a roughing penalty.In the third Nelson jumped all over the Rebels.Matt MacDonald tied the game before Darnel St. Pierre ripped a point shot past Zubick.Forty seconds later Robson Cramer added some insurance with another blast from the left faceoff circle Zubick had not chance of stopping.“Tonight we had really good contribution from the whole team from the goaltender out . . .,” McLellan said.“It’s not an ideal game for my liking,” McLellan added. “We were really strong defensively overall for a while . . . (but) we got caught pinching all over the ice but it’s all stuff we can fix.“We talked to the guys after the game and a couple of the goals we’re really our mistakes and not something they did and as a coach we can make it better.”Nelson, which out shot Castlegar 40-36 in the game, returns to action next Friday when the club travels to Fruitvale to meet the Hawks.ICE CHIPS: Leafs dressed 17 players against Castlegar by design said McLellan. The Leaf coach said the club is awaiting cuts from the Junior A to fill out the balance of the roster . . . Aaron Dunlap had the “C” on his jersey with last year’s captain Darnel St. Pierre, Patrick Croome and Robson Cramer serving as assistants. . . . The last time Patrick Zubick played in the NDCC Arena he was a member of the Leafs during the Murdoch Division Finals against Beaver Valley. Zubick was called on to play goal after both Nelson netminders were hurt. . . . 100 Mile House spoiled banner night in Fruitvale as the Wranglers edged Beaver Valley 4-3. 100 Mile House rallied from a 3-1 deficit to steal the victory. . . . Friday night at the NDCC Arena during Nelson’s home-opener against Beaver Valley, the game was delayed 20 minutes after one of the pieces of glass was broked during the warm-up. Then early in the game BC Ambulance was called after Nico Sidoni was hammered into the boards. Sidoni was taken to Kootenay Lake Hospital, but was later released. . . . Nelson Leafs season tickets will be on sale during games at the NDCC Arena.last_img read more
