OAXACA, Mexico (Reuters) - Two members of Mexico's Congress and two local politicians were killed on Friday when their private plane crashed near a popular Mexican Pacific beach resort, officials said.
Guillermo Zavaleta and Juan Huerta, both members of President Felipe Calderon's National Action Party (PAN), died in the crash in Huatulco in the state of Oaxaca, state security chief Javier Rueda told Milenio TV.
The pilot was also killed, he added.
Oaxaca Attorney General Maria de la Luz Candelaria told Reuters the plane had taken off from the state of Mexico, near the capital, and crashed shortly before landing in Huatulco without making any emergency call.
The politicians were believed to have been traveling to Huatulco to attend a training course.
