The attorney general of Mexico’s Sonora state said he will charge five opposition party leaders with helping to incite a riot aimed at preventing the new mayor of Agua Prieta, a member of the ruling party, from taking office. The city hall of Agua Prieta, a border city of 40,000, was burned down Monday, forcing Mayor Bernardino Meza Ortiz to begin his term of office in a motel room. The opposition has charged that the ruling party rigged the election.
