Chantal Da Silva reports:

The Committee to Protect Journalists is calling on Mexican authorities to “immediately and credibly” investigate an attack on a nationally-renowned investigative journalist’s home that saw her two dogs killed and her reporting records stolen.

According to the CPJ, a number of unidentified individuals broke into investigative reporter Lydia Cacho Ribeiro’s home in Puerto Morelos, located in the southern Mexican state of Quintana Roo, on July 21.

The suspects are alleged to have killed the journalist’s two pet dogs and stolen much of her reporting equipment and data, including a laptop computer, audio recorder, three cameras, memory cards and ten hard drives.
