Mexico: Univision journalist denounces abduction attempt in Tamaulipas during presidential press conference

“A Univision journalist denounced at the presidential morning press conference in Mexico [Monday, April 29] that an attempt was made to abduct one of his colleagues in Tamaulipas, for which President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) offered him protection.

From the National Palace, he reported the case of Francisco Cobos, who was blocked by a group of armed men on the Reynosa-Nuevo Laredo highway when returning to the United States from reporting in Monterrey.

The Univision journalist said that Cobos is afraid, since they kept his IDs and have his addresses in Nuevo Leon and the United States. In addition to this, AMLO asked him for all the information and assured that he will support and protect him in everything."
