Gunmen have attacked the car of a Honduran television journalist, killing her pregnant daughter but leaving her uninjured.

Police spokesman Orlin Cerrato said Wednesday two gunmen on a motorcycle shot at Karol Cabrera's car late Tuesday in the capital.

The daughter was driving the car. She was 8 months pregnant, and doctors saved her baby boy.

It was unclear whether the attack was related to Cabrera's work. As a commentator she largely supported the interim government that ousted Honduras' president in a June 28 coup.

Since then several government officials or their relatives have been attacked, but no political motive has been confirmed.
