    Entire police force detained in Mexico town where mayoral candidate killed

    The whole police force in a Mexican town of Ocampo where a mayoral candidate was slain this week has been detained for an internal investigation, authorities said Sunday.

Mayoral candidate Fernando Angeles was shot dead last Thursday when he was preparing for campaign events.
