    The governor of Mexico’s central Puebla state, Martha Erika Alonso, killed in an air crash yesterday, just days after being sworn into office.

    According to official sources, her husband, Senator Rafael Moreno Valle, was also killed in the crash. Reports say the accident happened shortly after the aircraft – believed to be a helicopter – took off from the state capital of Puebla.

    Ms Alonso, 45, became the first female governor of Puebla after hotly contested elections. She was a member of the centre-right PAN party.
