Guerrilla Leader’s Widow Murdered in Southern Mexico

CHILPANCINGO, Mexico – The widow of legendary guerrilla leader Lucio Cabañas and her sister were killed over the weekend by gunmen in the southern Mexican state of Guerrero, officials said.

Isabel Anaya Nava, Cabañas’ last wife, was gunned down Sunday as she was leaving a church in Xaltianguis, a town located about 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) from the Pacific resort city of Acapulco, the Guerrero Public Safety Secretariat said.

The 54-year-old Anaya Nava and her sister were killed around 1:00 p.m., Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Guerrero, or APPG, leader Nicolas Chavez told Mexican media, adding that the women’s bodies were still lying in the street three hours after they were shot.

Anaya Nava’s daughter, Micalea Cabañas, “is an active activist and critic of the government,” Chavez said.

“We need to know if (the murder) was because of her activities of a social nature or for other reasons ... we demand that they clear up this case,” Chavez said.

Lucio Cabañas, founder of the Party of the Poor, or PDLP, died in a shootout with army troops in 1974 in Atoyac de Alvarez, Guerrero.

Guerrero state, whose mountains are a prime growing area for illegal crops, has been the scene in recent years of a war between rival drug cartels that left 370 people dead last year in Acapulco alone.

The state, which suffers from a high level of poverty, has also been affected by other types of conflicts, and guerrilla groups have sprouted up there. EFE
