1)  World news roundup


Swiss officials have seized more than $90 million from Raul Salinas de
Gortari, a brother of Mexico’s former president. A police investigation
concluded that Salinas filled his Swiss bank accounts with money that he
received for allegedly protecting drug shipments into the United States.
Salinas asserted that the money in Switzerland is part of an investment
fund he pulled together from some of Mexico’s wealthiest businessman.
Lawyers for Salinas will go before Switzerland’s supreme court to demand
the return of funds.

championships won by any professional sports team.
