Death of news director deplored by U.S. agency

The head of the U. N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization Thursday deplored the death of Bolivian news agency director David Niño de Guzmán and called for an investigation into his death.

The 42 year old joined Agencia de Noticias Fides as a reporter in 2006 and became news director in March 2010. He was found dead April 21 in La Paz’s Restamanis neighborhood, two days after he had been reported missing.

He was killed by an explosive device, according to the non-governmental group Committee to Protect Journalists.

Irina Bokova, director general of the U.S. agency, urged the Bolivian authorities to thoroughly investigate the brutal ”death of Niño de Guzmán”, the U.S. said.
