CIUDAD VICTORIA, Mexico: A Mexican reporter was shot dead on Wednesday in the violence-plagued northeastern state of Tamaulipas, according to the newspaper Expreso where he worked.

Antonio de la Cruz was the 12th journalist killed so far this year in Mexico, which is on course for one of its deadliest years yet for the press. He had frequently denounced alleged acts of corruption by politicians in his posts on social media.
