Bolivia radio Journalist attacked on air
Unknown assailants in Bolivia attacked and wounded two radio journalists at their studio Monday while they were on the air, officials and local media reported.
Four assailants broke into Radio Popular in Yacuiba, a town on Bolivia's southern border with Argentina, and apparently attacked the journalists with a Molotov cocktail. The incident was followed live by radio listeners.
Station director Fernando Vidal and the second journalist were rushed to a town hospital suffering from severe burns, local media said.
At the moment of the attack, Vidal was interviewing two guests who denounced corruption at the Bolivian customs office.
Bolivia's interior ministry vowed in a statement to AFP to carry out an "accelerated and rigorous investigation" into the attack in the town located 700 kilometers (434 miles) south of La Paz.
Police arrested three of the attackers, according to local media -- a report government officials refused to confirm.
