Shultz begins touchy visit to Mexico

A US delegation led by Secretary of State George Shultz was scheduled to arrive in Mexico for two days of talks.

US intervention in Central America is not popular with either the government or people here.

Washington also recently wiped several Mexican goods off a list of preferential exports - raising duties at a time when Mexico's economy is under severe strain.
