The murder of Mexican journalist Angel Castillo Corona has been condemned by the head of the United Nations agency tasked with defending press freedom.

Corona, who wrote about politics, was beaten to death 4 July while travelling on a Mexican highway.

His 16 year old son, who was with him, was also killed when the assailants ran him over.

No one has been arrested for the murders.

Irina Bokova, the Director General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) said in a statement that Castillo is but the newest addition to Mexico's alarmingly long list of victims sacrificed on the altar of freedom of expression.
