LEFTIST PARTY ACTIVIST KILLED IN SOUTHERN MEXICO

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Gunmen killed the leader of Mexico's leftist Democratic Revolution Party in the southern state of Guerrero, authorities said Thursday.

The killing prompted Guerrero's governor to cut short a trip to the United States aimed at convincing cruise ship lines that the state's flagship resort, Acapulco, is safe enough to bring their ships back for visits.

Some cruise ships have stopped visiting the Pacific coast state because of continued violence, like the assassination late Wednesday of leftist politician Demetrio Saldivar. The state prosecutors' office said Thursday that Saldivar was killed in the state capital, Chilpancingo. The office said a witness watched as two men blocked Saldivar with a car, then shot him to death before fleeing.

Saldivar was the state general secretary of the PRD party in Guerrero. Local media reported he had previously occupied a post in the state government.
