A helicopter crashed this morning near Mexico City
, killing all eight aboard
, including Mexican Secretary of the Interior
, Francisco Blake Mora
. This has happened almost exactly three years to the day a plane crashed in Mexico City, killing a previous mexican Secretary of the Interior
, Juan Camilo Mouriño
(Blake Mora even tweeted about remembering Mouriño last week, in his last tweet
[link in Spanish]).
Is it just a sad coincidence, or is something else going on?
Blake, as well as Mouriño had been involved in capturing drug lords
[link in Spanish] and combating the rise of violence throughout the country, so this crash, as well as the last one was, is being examined carefully
[link in Spanish] to rule out sabotage.
