On August 3, unidentified attackers set fire to the studios of Catholic radio station Quebracho Poty, based in the town of Puerto Casado on the Brazilian border. The attackers set the station's broadcasting equipment ablaze and cut the antenna's cables, according to local journalist Charles Saldívar. Radio Quebracho Poty had supported the national government's expropriation of land surrounding the town. The land was owned by the sect of Sun Myung Moon, head of the Unification Church.
