Officials in Santa Lucia del Camino, Oaxaca, Mexico have released security officers Abel Santiago Zárate and Orlando Manuel Aguilar Coello, the two suspects arrested in the killing of Indymedia cameraman Brad Will during a protest against Oaxaca’s governor on October 27. They were released December 1 after a month in custody, according to the daily newspaper La Jornada.

Reporters Without Borders, the press freedom organization, suspects a cover-up: “Everything suggests that the Oaxaca state judicial authorities are now trying to cover up for Governor Ulíses Ruiz Ortiz’s aides.”
