Journalist and community leader killed in Caquetá department
Salas, who also previously worked in radio, was a community leader and the president of a committee calling for the recall of the local mayor, Esneider Mayorga. According to FLIP's sources, Salas's murder may be linked to his political and community-related activities.
FLIP sent its condolences to the journalist's family and friends. The organisation called the assassination a serious affront to freedom of expression and urged the Attorney General's Office to investigate the incident and ensure that those responsible are identified. FLIP will continue to monitor the case.
