Journalists and activists hold images of murdered journalists during a demonstration against the murder of a journalist Anabel Flores outside the Government of Veracruz building in Mexico City on February 11, 2016.

Mexico is considered one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists. Twenty-seven have been killed since 2010.

The Committee to Protect Journalists has called on authorities in Mexico to break the culture of impunity and do more to successfully prosecute those murdering reporters.

TRT World's Alasdair Baverstock reports from Veracruz where the vast majority of Mexico's journalists have been killed.
