"Mexican police arrested a former governor Tuesday night on suspicion that he embezzled more than $9 million (about 100 million pesos) in federal relief funds meant to rebuild hurricane disaster zones.  Prosecutors in the southern state of Chiapas said former Gov. Pablo Salazar was detained in the Yucatan resort of Cancun. He was waiting to be flown to the Chiapas state capital, they said." (06/07/11)
