MEXICO CITY (AP) — Prosecutors in southern Mexico say they have captured a man suspected in the killing of a U.S. journalist during protests against the Oaxaca state government in 2006.
A spokesman for the Oaxaca state prosecutors office says suspect Lenin Osorio was captured early Wednesday.
The spokesman says he is not authorized to be quoted by name, and that he does not know which side of the conflict the suspect was on.
Bradley Will was shot as he videotaped a clash between protesters and government supporters.
The New York man was covering the conflict for Indymedia.org. He sympathized with the protesters, one of whom was arrested in 2008 for the killing but was later released.
The protests started as a teachers' strike and paralyzed Oaxaca's capital for months until federal police intervened.
