Mayor shot dead in Mexico

A mayor-elect from the Institutional Revolutionary Party that scored a comeback in recent elections was found shot dead Sunday with an aide in northern Mexico, officials said.

"The lifeless body of mayor-elect Edgar Morales was found in a van this morning" in the town of Matehuala in San Luis Potosi state, a spokeswoman for the local prosecutor's office told AFP by telephone. The second body was identified as Juan Francisco Hernandez, Morales's campaign manager.

A man who survived the attack with no injuries told police that unidentified assailants attacked the three men as they left a party.

Morales had been elected in the July 1 elections that also earned Enrique Pena Nieto the presidency, the AFP writes.
