One woman wounded in shooting at Mexican newspaper

Armed men attacked the newspaper Noticias de El Sol de la Laguna in the city of Torreón in the northern Mexican state of Coahuila on Tuesday, June 22, reports El Nuevo Herald.

The receptionist, a 26-year-old woman, was lightly wounded.

Authorities promised a thorough investigation, and protection for all the local media, Noticias de El Sol de la Laguna reports.

In May, the newspaper closed its police section after journalist Javier Adame Gómez was threatened for writing about an attack that left eight people dead, according to IFEX.

Another local newspaper, El Siglo de Torreón, suffered a similar attack last August.
