MEXICO : Ex-Prez Zedillo Claims Immunity...In Acteal Massacre Lawsuit.


     Ten unnamed plaintiffs are suing former Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo for crimes against humanity...and seeking $50 million damages.

    Zedillo counter claims that his status as a former national leader gives him immunity.
