Philippine radio broadcaster gunned down

New York, July 5, 2005—A radio commentator was ambushed and shot at least 15 times by a gang of motorcycle-riding assailants while driving home on the southern island of Mindanao on Sunday. Rolando "Dodong" Morales, who died at the scene, had just finished hosting his weekly program on radio dxMD in General Santos City.

The Committee to Protect Journalists is alarmed by the fatal attack, and is investigating the circumstances behind the killing to determine whether it was related to Morales' broadcasting. Three other journalists have been murdered in the Philippines already this year because of their work, according to CPJ research.
