Mexico: Politician murdered in violence-hit Guerrero state

  • Aide Nava, a Mexican politician who was standing for mayoral elections in June in Guerrero state, has been murdered.

    Her decapitated body was found on a road close to Chilpancingo, the state capital. 

    A note next to her body was signed by a criminal gang and warned that other politicians would also suffer a similar fate.

    In September, 43 students had gone missing from Guerrero, one of the most violence-prone states in the country. Though their bodies have not been found, they are believed to have been killed by a criminal gang.
