Home of "El Debate" newspaper editor Moisés García Castro targetted in gun attack in Sinaloa
Media in Sinaloa, the bastion of the drug cartel that goes by the same name, are particularly vulnerable to the violence that is rampant throughout the country. The daily "El Debate" was already the target of a grenade attack in the state capital, Culiacán, on 17 November 2008. On 28 November 2004, "El Debate" photographer Gregorio Rodríguez was murdered. And, on 6 May 2008, federal police carried out a brutal search of the premises of the daily "El Diario".
