Brad Will, an American journalist for the Web site www.indymedia.org, was killed in Oaxaca, Mexico last Friday, Oct. 27. Will was covering protests by teachers and citizen groups that are demanding that Gov. Ulises Ruiz Ortiz step down. The protests have grown since they began last May. Until Sunday, President Vicente Fox resisted sending police to intervene in the violent scene because he was hoping for a peaceful negotiation, The Washington Post said.
