Paramilitaries kill human rights activists in Oaxaca

Jyri Antero Jaakkola (February 11, 1977 – April 27, 2010 Oaxaca, Mexico) was a Finnish human-rights activist. He was on his way to San Juan Copala, a village of Trique indigenous people that has declared itself autonomous, as a human-rights observer when he was shot dead by UBISORT, a paramilitary organization connected to Institutional Revolutionary Party. In the attack died also Alberta Cariño, an activist for the local organization CACTUS, and more than ten people were wounded.
