MEXICO CITY - An opposition leader in the central state of Puebla was killed when a car hit him as he did his morning exercises. Gabino Aparicio, a local leader of the leftist Democratic Revolution Party (PRD), was knocked over on Saturday morning and later died in hospital, a PRD spokesman said. The death came five days after the PRD candidate for governor in the 21 August elections in the state of Chiapas, Amado Avendano, was seriously injured when a truck hit his car. Reuter
