Opposition Clash Kills 3, Hurts Dozens in Chiapas

From Times Wire Reports

A clash between supporters of Mexico’s two main opposition political parties in the Chiapas state village of Zinacantan left three dead and dozens injured, officials said.

Gathered in front of the town hall, the two groups -- supporters of the Institutional Revolutionary Party and the Democratic Revolution Party -- began throwing rocks and firing guns. Several nearby cars and vendors’ stalls were burned. A 26-year-old man was fatally shot, and two more people died later of their wounds.
