Deaths cloud Colombian ex-governor's trial

Reporting from Bogota, Colombia -- The special prosecutor's office of Colombia said Thursday that it was investigating the deaths of 10 people linked to the slaying of a mayor in 2003, weeks after he had complained of being a marked man to President Alvaro Uribe.

A spokesman for Prosecutor Mario Iguaran confirmed the investigation, in a statement that came three days after the death of Grey del Carmen Tirado. She was the latest in a string of victims tied to the trial of former Sucre Gov. Salvador Arana, accused of ordering the killing of Mayor Eudaldo Diaz.

Also on Thursday, former state congressman Sigifredo Lopez was released by the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia after nearly seven years in captivity. He was the sixth hostage freed by Colombia's largest rebel group in the last week.
