Malcolm X's grandson dies in Mexico City, murder probe opened
(Reuters) - The grandson of murdered U.S. civil rights leader Malcolm X, Malcolm Shabazz, who was convicted as a child for a fire that killed his grandmother, has died in Mexico City after an apparent beating.
Mexico's attorney general's office said a murder investigation was under way. Shabazz, 29, died early on Thursday morning after he was taken to a hospital with a range of injuries.
The ambulance picked up Shabazz in Mexico City's run-down Plaza Garibaldi, home to Mariachi bands, strip clubs and dive bars and notorious for petty crime.
"The deceased was in a place of entertainment, drinking beers, according to a companion," the attorney general's office said in a statement. "He exhibited various injuries, apparently from blows." More
