Mexico Helicopter Crash Caused by Foggy Weather, Government Says

A Mexican helicopter crash that killed the country’s second-highest official and seven other people was caused by foggy weather and not sabotage, the government said.

The helicopter, which was carrying Interior Minister Francisco Blake Mora from Mexico City to a prosecutors’ meeting in the central city of Cuernavaca on Nov. 11, crashed in one piece, Communications and Transportation Minister Dionisio Perez-Jacome said. Radar readings show the pilot didn’t lose control of the chopper, he said.
