7 Plotted to Kill Colosio

At least seven people took part in a conspiracy in the assassination of Mexican ruling party presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio last month, the government-appointed special investigator said.

Five people are currently under arrest and police are searching for two other unidentified men, special investigator Miguel Montes said in a statement.

Colosio was shot in the head and the abdomen after giving a campaign speech in a rough neighborhood of the northern city of Tijuana, just over the U.S.-Mexican border from San Diego, March 23.
