Italian health volunteer killed during robbery in Mexico

Mexican authorities say an Italian man who worked as a volunteer at a community health center in southern Mexico has been shot to death in an apparent robbery

The center, Raiz del Viento, said Colosio was a trained radiological technician who had lived in Chiapas for about a decade. The center said street crime has increased in San Cristobal, which is a popular tourist destination.

Colosio was the second Italian citizen killed in the region in recent days. In Honduras, an Italian man was beaten and hacked to death Thursday by an angry mob of villagers. Residents claimed he had killed another resident of the town of Yusguare.
