Michoacán. Subjects with high-caliber weapons stopped journalists that were traveling in the caravan that was following the independent pre-candidate of the Indigenous Government Council – National Indigenous Congress, María de Jesús Patricio, ‘Marichuy’ and took away their photographic equipment.

 When the reporters were displaced at the point of the locations of Tepalcatepec and Buenavista, the commando that was traveling in two trucks stopped, threatened and robbed them of their equipment and their cell phones.

Some of those affected announced the attack; as of this time there is no version from the authorities regarding what happened.
