Hit in the face, neck and leg, he miraculously survived and was rushed to the nearest hospital, where his condition was reported to be stable. His newspaper said a car with tinted windows and no licence plate followed the vehicle that took him to the hospital.The newspaper’s management told Reporters Without Borders that Sánchez wrote a report on 29 December 2006 about the murder of Indymedia news agency cameraman Brad Will on 27 October 2006 during violent clashes between supporters and opponents of Oaxaca state governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz. Sánchez’s story blamed Will’s death on the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO), an activist alliance opposed to the governor, although the local authorities had initially been accused of his murder. Headlined “The APPO killed Brad,” the story’s publication was followed by threats against Sánchez. Nonetheless, no link has been established between the article and the 12 June shooting.Tiempo director Wenceslao Ramírez told Reporters Without Borders he had no idea of the motive for the attack.
