Abducted Mexican human rights official found alive
MEXICO CITY (AP) — A human rights official in the northern state of Jalisco was found alive Saturday, a day after his apparent kidnapping generated worries about the safety of rights workers in Mexico.
A statement from Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission called the news “encouraging,” adding that the investigation into what happened would continue. The statement did not name the official or provide details of how he was found alive.
Authorities said gunmen stopped the official on Friday as he was driving to the offices of the state rights commission and apparently kidnapped him. It was the second attack on rights workers in less than a week.
