In a letter to the editor published Sunday in The New York Times, Honduran minister on human rights Ana Pineda took issue with the findings of CPJ's recent special report on the murders of seven local reporters this year.

In her letter, Pineda asserted that "all cases have been fully investigated," but her claim appears to be flawed.
