Mexican priest killed in ambush

| June 16, 2009

A priest and two seminary students were shot dead after being ordered out of their car by gunmen in south-western Mexico, authorities have said.

The three were driving through the picturesque town of Arcelia, around 170km (105 miles) north of Acapulco.

No motive has been given for the attack, which happened at the weekend.

But Church leaders say the clergy are increasingly caught in the midst of the bitter violence waged by drug gangs that has claimed thousands of lives.
