MEXICO CITY Mexican Federal Police freed two kidnapped journalists held captive since last Monday in the northern part of the country by an organized crime group, officials said Saturday.
The two were in a group of four journalists who were intercepted last Monday in the La Laguna region, which includes areas in the states of Coahuila and Durango in northern Mexico. One of them, Hector Gordoa of Televisa, was released Thursday in good health.
In an operation based on intelligence work, the agents rescued the two journalists in the city of Gomez Palacio, Durango state, according to a communique from the Public Safety Secretariat, or SSP.
Those rescued were news cameramen Javier Canales Fernandez of Multimedios Laguna and Alejandro Hernandez Pacheco of Televisa Torreon.
Also in northern Mexico, unknown assailants threw a grenade from a moving car at the studios of the Televisa network in the northern city of Nuevo Laredo, without claiming any victims but damaging two vehicles, officials said.
