His vehicle was found on the morning of the 22nd in the municipality of Asunción Ixtaltepec .As detailed by the UN-DH in a statement, a few days prior to his disappearance, Silva had rejected pressure to modify a published news piece about the case as requested by the representative of three detainees allegedly linked to organized crime.The representative of the UN-DH in Mexico, Jan Jarab, said that “It is urgent that the corresponding state and federal authorities carry out an effective investigation that takes into account the journalistic work” of Silva and that it determines his whereabouts.“There is no denying the possible relationship between the disappearance of Agustín Silva and his journalistic work without having fully clarified the case and, above all, without having located the journalist.”The representative said that it is essential to create conditions that guarantee an environment conducive to the exercise of freedom of expression, especially in states with numerous cases of attacks on journalists such as Oaxaca, where 144 attacks against reporters have been recorded.Mexico is considered one of the most dangerous countries to practice journalism. In 2017, 12 journalists were killed, raising figures to 39 murders of journalists so far in the term of President Enrique Peña Nieto (2012-2018).According to Reporters Without Borders, Mexico had the same number of journalists killed in 2017 as Syria (12), followed by Afghanistan (9) and Iraq (8).
Andy Reid is preparing to coach his last game with the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday after the 13 years with the organization.But as ESPN Insider Adam Schefter reported Sunday, even if Reid is handed a pink slip by the Eagles in the coming days, don’t expect him to be on the market long. [Reid] has been calling around the league, trying to put together a coaching staff, so that if and when he is let go in Philadelphia, he will be ready to resume coaching for another franchise next season. While most assumed Reid might be a logical replacement for Norv Turner in San Diego, Schefter reports the Chargers will not look be looking in the California native’s direction. One direction the veteran head coach might look in is the Valley and a potential head coaching vacancy with the Arizona Cardinals.Sports Illustrated’s Don Banks suggested the idea earlier in the week, and Schefter reported Sunday that the two parties might be a match.Although he is not expected to be a candidate with the Chargers, he could wind up as a candidate in Jacksonville if the Jaguars fire Mike Mularkey or in Arizona if the Cardinals part ways with coach Ken Whisenhunt.Under Reid’s guidance, the Eagles have made nine postseason appearances, including a trip to Super Bowl 39 and four NFC Championship games.
