Paúl Rivas was a 45 year-old Ecuadorian photographer. He was kidnapped last April and later killed because of his investigations on drug-related border violence for Ecuadorian daily El Comercio.

In the past twelve years, more than 1,050 journalists have been killed for reporting the news and bringing information to the public. The United Nations proclaimed November 2 as the "International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists," a date originally chosen to commemorate the 2013 assassination of two French journalists in Mali.
