Mayor-Elect Shot as Hits on Mexico Politicians Climb

Soon there will not be anybody left kill when it comes to politicians in Mexico.

Mexico the Worlds first Country entirely run by a Drug cartel.

The mayor-elect of a small town near Oaxaca state's Pacific coast has been shot to death, the latest in a string of political figures who have been slain in Mexico this year.

Antonio Jimenez Banos, 47, who would have taken office in January in Martires de Tacubaya, was killed Friday afternoon by an assailant as he was returning to his farm. He was hit in the head and chest apparently with a shotgun, prosecutors said.

Eleven sitting mayors have been killed so far this year in Mexico. Two of them were also in Oaxaca, but most of the killings have been in northern states plagued by drug gang violence.
