Mexico minister dies in air crash
The man leading the fight against the Mexican drug trade, the public security minister, Ramon Martin Huerta, has been killed in a helicopter crash.
He was among nine people who died when their aircraft went down in mountains near Mexico city, President Vicente Fox has confirmed.
The head of the federal police was also among the dead.
Mr Huerta, a close friend of Mr Fox, was on his way to a top security jail. The cause of the crash is unclear.
He had been leading efforts to stop a wave of drug-related violence that has killed hundreds of people this year.

Hmm.... thats rather weird. I really do feel bad for the Mexican people right now.
However it makes me wonder what's up with that. I mean, I didn't think Mexico was lacking resources enough were they'd stick two highly important officials on one helicopter. Maybe I'm wrong.
But since this is coming, anybody think sabatoge? You know, maybe it was drug lords trying to protect themselves. Maybe the CIA did it to protect their supposed drug trafficking.
I'm not too sure about it, but I'm just tossing a few ideas here.
