Mexican minister killed in crash

Officials say they have not detected any signs of foul play, and the crash appears to have been an accident.

But Mr Mourino had been in charge of security during the government's violent battle with powerful drug cartels, and his death is a big blow to the government, says BBC Americas analyst Warren Bull.

About 3,000 people have been killed in drug-related violence since the start of the year, and the country's kidnapping rates are among the highest in the world.
