BANGKOK: The Committee to Protect Journalists has urged the authorities in the Philippines to identify the motive behind the murders of two journalists and ensure the perpetrators are brought to justice. Both reporters were columnists for the Aksyon Ngayon weekly tabloid newspaper.
Two unidentified assailants on motorcycles shot Richard Kho and Bonifacio Loreto in front of a convenience store on Tuesday at around 11 p.m. in the Quezon City neighborhood of Manila, according to news reports. Authorities said the journalists died from multiple gunshot wounds and that police recovered several .45 caliber and 9-millimeter shells from the crime scene, the reports said.
Ray Moreno, a friend of the journalists who was with them at the time of the attack, told local press that the assailants arrived by motorcycle, opened fire on them at close range, and fled the scene. He said he was able to survive the attack by pretending he was dead, the reports said.
