Ecuador’s Youngest Mayor and Aide Tragically Fatally Shot.

Authorities in Ecuador have reported the tragic shooting deaths of Brigitte Garcia, the 27-year-old major of San Vicente, and her communications director, Jairo Loor. The bodies were discovered in Manabi province, both having sustained gunshot wounds. Police are actively investigating the incident, revealing that the gunfire originated from within a rented vehicle. Brigitte Garcia, a member of the left-wing Citizen Revolution Movement Party led by former president Rafael Correa, becomes the latest political figure to fall victim to violence in Ecuador. This grim event echoes the assassination of presidential candidate Fernando Villavencio last August, highlighting ongoing concerns surrounding political safety and security in the country.
