Amazon Guardian killed by illegal loggers

Latin America Correspondent

A young indigenous anti-logging activist has been shot dead in the Brazilian Amazon. Paulo Paulino Guajajara’s tribe said he was ambushed by illegal loggers while out hunting. Another tribesman was injured. Both were members of a local group formed to combat the threat of illegal logging gangs pillaging the rainforest.

The Brazilian Justice Minister said the government would spare no effort to find those responsible.
