Gilberto Soto

In my last post, I indicated that there had been no coverage of the murder of union activist Gilberto Soto in the Salvadoran press. I was wrong. Although the murder was not covered right away, there has been coverage now in La Prensa Grafica, Diario CoLatino, El Diario de Hoy and in Diario El Mundo. Predictably, the coverage varies with the political inclinations of the paper from CoLatino featuring the political theory for the assassination and Diario de Hoy spotlighting a government assertion that there was no political motivation.
