Salvadoran journalist reports being slapped by deputy police inspector

"Deputy inspector Martínez Velásquez hit journalist Jorge Beltrán Luna while the latter was covering the recovery of the body of a student killed in Apopa on Tuesday [July 6] by gang members, the journalist denounced on Twitter.

'Today I have been attacked with a slap by deputy inspector Martínez Velásquez,' is part of what Beltrán can be heard denouncing in a video broadcast on his profile in which the viewer can see the police officer violently charging him and asking him to leave the place. After hitting him, the deputy inspector also threatened that he would have consequences before a judge and the Prosecutor's Office. Both the head of the Court and the Prosecutor's Office have been appointed by the ruling party."
