Assassination of second Philippine town mayor caught on camera
A second town mayor in the Philippines was shot and killed by an unidentified man in a road attack, one day after the mayor of another city was gunned down in a daylight sniper attack. Tuesday's killing prompted an opposition senator to call the country the "murder capital of Asia". Mayor Ferdinand Bote of the General Tinio town was leaving a government compound in a sports utility vehicle in the northern Nueva Ecija province when a man on a motorcycle shot him repeatedly with a pistol. The gunman escaped, police said.
