October 28, 2006: Mexican president sends federal troops into violence-wracked southern city

President Vicente Fox announced Saturday he was sending federal security forces into the violence-wracked southern state capital of Oaxaca after a U.S. journalist and two Mexican men were killed by gunfire.

The clashes occurred Friday as leftist protesters barricaded streets as part of a five-month-old campaign to oust the governor.
