Mexico City: A journalist with National Geographic has been shot in the leg while interviewing a purported drug dealer in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, a city just south of El Paso, Texas.

The attorney general's office for the northern Mexico state of Chihuahua says the journalist was attended to at a local hospital. The purported drug dealer was killed in the Friday evening ambush.

The office described the journalist as a "foreign" reporter who was working alongside three other journalists, but did not offer further details about the team.
