Dominican Republic: Three men have been arrested after two journalists were killed during a live radio broadcast in the Dominican Republic. One of the journalists was filming his show on Facebook Live when he was shot. The footage showed his broadcast interrupted by gunfire and a panicked woman shouting “Shots! Shots! Shots!”.

British newspaper The Independent has published the Facebook Live video up to the point when the shooting started.

The two journalists killed were presenter Luis Manuel Medina and radio producer Leo Martinez. A woman was also injured and is undergoing surgery.

Police said the shooting happened on Tuesday in San Pedro de Macoris, east of the capital Santo Domingo.

In August 2015, two US journalists were shot dead during a live TV report in Virginia.
