Woman mayor shot dead in Mexico

The mayor of a town in western Mexico was killed on Monday, the regional government said, barely 24 hours after Claudia Sheinbaum was elected the Latin American country’s first woman president.

The Michoacan state government condemned “the murder of the municipal president (mayor) of Cotija, Yolanda Sanchez Figueroa,” the regional interior ministry said in a post on social media.

Sanchez, who was elected mayor in 2021 elections, was gunned down on a public road, according to local media.
