MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - A prominent Mexican news photographer was among five people found dead in a middle-class neighbourhood of the capital on Friday, the city's prosecutor told reporters at a Sunday press conference.

Ruben Espinosa, who a month ago claimed in interviews that he felt threatened by the governor of eastern Veracruz state, was the lone male among five victims that police discovered bound, beaten and shot in the head in the capital's Narvarte neighbourhood.
