Small-town mayor hacked to death in western Mexico
MORELIA, Mexico (AP) - Mexican authorities say a small-town mayor and his aide have been hacked to death by machete.
Tancitaro Mayor Guztavo Sanchez is the fifth mayor killed in Mexico since mid-August.
In December, Tancitaro’s then-mayor and seven other officials resigned.
They said they had been threatened by drug traffickers and police were not showing up to work.
Sanchez replaced the mayor who resigned.
