Helicopter crash in Mexico

The Secretary of Public Security, a member of the Human Rights Commission, several other functionaries, and the pilots of a helicopter all died when their helicopter crashed yesterday. Preliminary reports suggest it was an accident. Not surprisingly, the leftist press is pointing out that some of those killed in the crash had been threatened by drug lords, and one was threatened within the last month. There are several stories about the crash and those involved at La Jornada and El Universal .
