Mexico says round-the-world cyclists were murdered
Mexican investigators say two European cyclists did not die in an accident as first claimed - they were murdered.
The bodies of Holger Hagenbusch, from Germany, and Krzysztof Chmielewski, from Poland, were found at the bottom of a cliff in Chiapas state.
Local authorities had said the pair appeared to have fallen after losing control.
(snip)
"The Polish cyclist was decapitated and had a foot missing," he wrote on Facebook.

Chmielewski sustained a head injury that may be a gunshot wound, said Mr Sánchez.

I'm surprised the mexican authorities didn't call it a murder-suicide

Mexico's Lopez Obrador Wins Presidential Vote as Rivals Concede
the far-left candidate who has been likened to Hugo Chavez  won with a plurality but not a majority of the vote.
It was his 3rd run: they have 6-year terms in mexico and he ran in 2006 and 2012 as well, losing by a hair in 2006 when he refused to concede
López Obrador resigned the Mexico City headship in July 2005 to enter the 2006 presidential election, representing the Coalition for the Good of All, which was led by the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD) and included the Citizens' Movement party and the Labor Party. He received 35.31% of the vote and lost by 0.58%. López Obrador subsequently alleged electoral fraud and refused to concede, leading a several-months-long takeover of Paseo de la Reforma and the Zocalo in protest.

evidently he held a swearing-in ceremony where his supporters proclaimed him as "Legitimate President of Mexico" and he appointed a "Cabinet of Denunciation"

Mexico’s Next President Plans His Own Border Police Force
"We’re going to create a border police force that will be highly specialized," Durazo said in an interview. "They need to apply the law," including stopping undocumented migrants and human traffickers from crossing into Mexico, which Durazo says often takes place with the help of corrupt officials.
