TEGUCIGALPA, July 13, 2012 (AFP) - A journalist has been shot dead in Honduras, in the 21st deadly attack on the media in the violence-wracked Central American country in the past three years, a press watchdog said Friday.

Adonis Felipe Bueso Gutierrez, 24, was leaving an Internet cafe in the northern city of Villanueva with two cousins on July 8 when he was shot, said Longino Becerra of the Committee for Freedom of Expression (C-Libre).
Bueso Gutierrez was a journalist for Radio Stereo Naranja, a Christian station. His cousins was akso killed in the incident in Villanueva, located 200 km (125 miles) north of the capital Tegucigalpa.

Police deemed the incident a theft gone wrong but the victim had said before his death that the violence in Villanueva was escalating, said Becerra.

Twenty-one journalists have been killed in Honduras since the overthrow of president Manuel Zelaya on June 28, 2009. None of the murders have been solved.
