Rolando "Dodong" Morales, DXMD
3 July 2005

Radio presenter Rolando "Dodong" Morales, of the station DXMD, in southern Mindanao, was killed on 3 July 2005.

Eight gunmen on motorcycles attacked Morales, 43, near the town of Polomolok shortly after he had finished presenting his programme "Tingog sa Barangay" (The Voice of Barangay). The journalist was also riding a motorcycle. The killers continued firing at him as he lay on the ground, witnesses said. His body contained 15 bullets.

The motive for the attack was unclear but a week earlier, Morales had fiercely criticised drug traffickers in the region and received death threats, a colleague said.
