ROMEO JIMMY CABILLO

News Organization: MIDLAND REVIEW

Died: 2009

Location: PHILIPPINES

Cabillo was one of 30 journalists killed in the deadliest attack on journalists ever reported. Fifty-seven people died on the island of Mindanao in a massacre blamed on a feud between rival political clans. About 100 armed men attacked a convoy of vehicles carrying journalists, lawyers, relatives and supporters on their way to file election papers for a gubernatorial candidate in the Maguindanao province. The bodies were found in mass graves in the town of Ampatuan.
