FLOODS IN MEXICO KILL FOUR PEOPLE

Torrential rains have killed at least four people in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas, authorities said.

A downpour caused the Rio Coatan to overflow Wednesday, flooding a large portion of the Pacific-coast town of Cacahoatan and killing two women who tried to outrun the advancing floodwaters, said Police Director Horacio Schoeder.

Authorities also found the bodies of two children missing since a Tuesday night mudslide demolished a grade school and seven homes in the hamlet of Chanhjale, 25 miles north of San Cristobal.
