Mexican crime reporter killed in Veracruz state

VERACRUZ, Mexico (AP) - Authorities in Mexico's Gulf coast state of Veracruz say gunmen kidnapped and killed a reporter for the local edition of the national newspaper Milenio, the fifth such killing in the state in 1½ months.

Journalist Víctor Manuel Baez Chino covered the crime beat for Milenio's Veracruz edition as well as for the news website Police Reporters.

Veracruz state spokeswoman Gina Dominguez says Baez Chino was reported kidnapped outside the offices of the website in the state capital as he left work late Wednesday.

His body was found dumped on a street in the city of Xalapa early Thursday.

Three photographers were found murdered outside the port of Veracruz in early May, and a reporter was killed in Xalapa in late April.
