    FBI assassinates Puerto Rican Nationalist leader

    According to this report, from Democracy Now, it appears that the Puerto Rican Nationalist leader has been assassinated by the FBI:

    Longtime Puerto Rican nationalist leader Filiberto Ojeda Rios has been killed by the FBI. The shooting occurred Friday after FBI agents surrounded a house where he was staying. According to an autopsy, Rios bleed to death after being hit with a single bullet. Officials didn’t enter his home until Saturday, many hours after he was shot. The FBI claimed the 72-year-old Ojeda Rios fired first but independence activists accused the FBI of assassinating him.
