MEXICO CITY - Relatives of a slain Mexican activist say they will seek asylum in the United States.
Marisela Reyes tells MVS Radio the family wants to leave after a nephew received a death threat - one of many targeting the family.
Reyes is the sister of Josefina Reyes, who led protests against alleged abuses by Mexican soldiers in the Juarez Valley, across from El Paso, Texas. She was killed about a year ago.
In August, unknown assailants killed Josefina Reyes' brother Ruben. In February, her mother's home was set on fire while she was protesting the crimes against her family.
And in late February, Josefina Reyes' sister, brother and sister-in-law were found dead in the desert.
Reyes was interviewed by the radio station Friday. The U.S. Embassy in Mexico declined to comment.
