Prosecutor shot dead in violent Mexico border city

The No. 2 federal prosecutor in a violent Mexican border city near Texas was shot dead on Wednesday night. Jesus Martin Huerta was one of the highest ranking government officials killed in drug-fueled violence sweeping Ciudad Juarez. The attorney general's office said two gunmen opened fire on Huerta's car while it was stopped at an intersection. A woman behind the wheel who also worked for the attorney general's office was also killed. Police named no suspects in Wednesday's attack, but drug gangs have increasingly targeted police and federal officials as they resist a national crackdown.
