Some Mexican March for 3rd Day For Slain Drug Lord

MORELIA, Mexico (AP) - More than 100 people marched through the Michoacan state capital Monday holding signs lauding Nazario Moreno, the chief of La Familia cartel who the government says was killed during two days of battles with federal police last week.

One sign urged Moreno's reputed successor - Jose de Jesus Mendez
- "to go hard after the government but don't involve civilians."

A caravan of cars spray-painted with pro-La Familia messages
also drove to the lake town of Patzcuaro.

State Public Safety Secretary Manuel Ruiz insisted the majority
of citizens were against the marches.
