Mexican Federal Judge attacked, one bodyguard killed

Armed assailants wounded a Mexican federal judge in the western state of Nayarit and killed one of his bodyguards, judiciary officials said on Friday.

Judge Carlos Alberto Elorza Amores “was attacked (Thursday afternoon) by gunmen at a housing estate” in the town of Xalisco, Jose Vilches, spokesman for the Federal Judicial Council, or CJF, said.

“The bodyguards who were accompanying him repelled the aggression, but one was gunned down,” Vilches said. The other two bodyguards assigned to Elorza were “slightly wounded” in the attack.
