CONCERN IN VATICAN OVER MURDER OF MEXICAN PRIEST
    VATICAN CITY, JAN 18 (ZENIT).- There was real commotion in Rome after receiving the news of the murder of Mexican priest, Fr. Josť Ignacio Flores Gaytan, who died strangled in the city of Torreon, after being knifed 13 times.

    According to authorities, the killer was a robber who wanted to steal the priest's car and his cellular phone.

    The news was published today on the front page of the Vatican's L'Osservatore Romano newspaper, and in "Avvenire," the newspaper of the Italian Episcopal Conference; it was also carried on Vatican Radio.

    After hearing the news, observers of religious affairs said that in many countries of Africa and Latin America, common delinquency is specifically targeting priests and men and women religious, as they are usually vulnerable, defenseless victims who often direct assistance structures that have materials that malefactors wish to steal.
