Stamp issued for Latino journalist Rubén Salazar

LOS ANGELES (AP): A U.S. postage stamp was released on April 23, 2008 honoring Latino journalist Rubén Salazar, who was killed during an anti-Vietnam War riot in 1970.

Salazar was a Los Angeles Times reporter who covered the Vietnam War and then became news director for the Spanish-language television station KMEX in January 1970.

Salazar was 42 when he was struck by a tear gas projectile fired by a sheriff's deputy in August 1970 while covering anti-war rioting in
East Los Angeles.

The City Council has declared Tuesday ``Rubén Salazar Day'' in Los Angeles. Council President Eric Garcetti says the Salazar stamp will allow his story to ``be retold to a new generation.''

The Salazar stamp is part of a five-stamp pane honoring journalists who risked their lives reporting some of the most important events of the 20th century.
