CNDH probes killings
in Zacatecas, Michoacán
Investigator from Mexico’s
National Human Rights
Commission (CNDH) fanned out to two states Monday to investigate killings in
which federal troops may
have been involved.
On Sunday, the Mexican
army’s 11th Military Zone
announced in a statement
that its military justice arm
had found indications that
soldiers were involved in
the disappearance of seven
people on July 7 in Calera,
Zacatecas. The army said it
would pass on its findings to
the Mexican Attorney General’s Office (PGR) and continue investigating to determine if military discipline
is merited.
One day earlier, the
army announced it was opening an investigation after
complaints and banners
accused soldiers of involvement in the disappearances.
Seven bodies were reportedly found last week elsewhere in Zacatecas. It remained unclear whether
they were the same people

Paulina Rubio insults Puebla wins
Donald Trump
Supercopa MX
Singer Paulina Rubio called U.S. tycoon Donald
Trump as a “pend...,“ a
really bad word in Spanish
with meanings ranging
from “idiot” to “imbecile”,
passing through terms
that more than one could
find fitting.
In a video published on
YouTube the singer responds to a journalist question about her views regarding Trump with a simple
and direct phrase: “That
Trump is a ‘pend...’”.
Rubio participated in
the Reventón Superestrella,

Los Ángeles, where she was

Peña Nieto said that the armed forces of the country
will always be praised by citizens even when some sectors are trying to tarnish
their actions.

of the marine and navy come from the people.

The goal was scored by

La Franja had the control

Army and the Navy of Mexico, support and strength
of the democratic institutions in the country.”
“No matter how many

Trump surged into the
lead for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, with almost twice
the support of his closest
rival, according to a poll
conducted by ABC and
the Washington Post.
And Trump is heading
the polls after he continues
his attacks against immigrants, and getting flack
for them, and ignited a new
controversy after making
disparaging remarks about
Sen. John McCain’s Vietnam War service.
Yet, support for Trump
fell sharply on the one
night that voters were surveyed following those comments. Telephone interviewing for the poll began
Thursday, and most calls
were completed before the
news about the remarks
was widely reported.
Although the sample
size for the final day was
small, the decline was
statistically significant.
Still, it is difficult to predict what could happen
to Trump’s support in
the coming days and
weeks as the controversy
plays out.
Even with the drop in
support on the final night
of the survey, Trump was
the favorite of 24 percent
of registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents. That
is the highest percentage
and biggest lead recorded
by any GOP candidate
this year in Post-ABC
News polls and marks a
sixfold increase in his
support since late May,
shortly before he formally joined the race.
