The scandal surrounding the assassination of the Mexican presidential candidate, Luis Donaldo Colosio, has deepened following a claim by the father of the accused killer that his son met two Mexican federal security officials weeks before the shooting, writes Phil Reeves in Los Angeles. The allegation comes after he and other relatives of the accused assassin, Mario Aburto Martinez, 23, fled across the border into the US, where they requested political asylum, saying they had been threatened.
