Sinaloa activist slain while broadcasting radio program

Prosecutors in the northern Mexico state of Sinaloa say two gunmen walked into a radio station and killed a local activist while he was broadcasting his weekly radio program.

Atilano Roman Tirado was the leader of a group of farmers demanding compensation for lands were flooded by dam construction several years ago.

Roman Tirado had a weekly variety program on the local Fiesta Mexicana radio station.

Sinaloa state prosecutors said Sunday that two men walked into the station Saturday and asked for Roman Tirado. They then walked into the studio where he was working and shot him. He died at a local hospital.
