17 March 1982 four IKON journalists, reporting on the Civil War in El Salvador, were shot by the Junta. This murder became known as the Santa Rita Massacre.

Constant was very shocked by the brutal and planned murder of four Dutch journalists - Koos Koster, Hans ter Laag, Jan Kuiper and Joop Willemsen - who worked for IKON. The four journalists had been ambushed - a bowl in the middle of wooded hills - where about twenty armed soldiers had holed up. This made escape impossible for the four men and the guerrillas who accompanied them.
