Gunmen shot and killed a radio reporter in an ambush in the province of South Cotabato today.

Authorities identified the victim as Rommel "Jojo" Palma, 31, a reporter at Bombo Radyo.

Palma was shot twice in the neck by unidentified gunmen on a motorcycle.

The Committee to Protect Journalists early this month ranked the Philippines third in its 2012 Impunity Index.

The group reported there had been 55 murders of Filipino journalists in the past ten years.
