A television cameraman was shot to death on a bus as he rode to work in El Salvador, the Associated Press reported. Three suspected gang members boarded the bus and killed Alfredo Hurtado (in photo), a police report quoted by the AP said. The motives for the killing were not clear. Gangs have killed and threatened journalists in El Salvador in the past, most notably Christian Poveda, a French documentary maker who was killed in 2009 after showing his finished work about the gangs to their leaders.
