Structure

In an article by the Associated Press, the reporter's lead clearly stated the most important information, inserting the cause of deaths and the death toll number. The reporter mainly focuses of the recent effects of the landslide and some specific figures whom it affected. He also elaborated on his lead in the middle, summarizing more detailed facts about the death toll and the number of landslides. He ends with giving a brief history of the culture of the area that was affected for those readers who have never heard of Oaxaca.

His article was effective and the fact that he brought in stories of specific people who were affected made the story more personal rather than being solely composed of cut-throat facts.
