Curacao party leader assassinated in drive-by shooting

Helmin Wiels of the Pueblo Soberano Party (Sovereign People Party) was reportedly shot in a drive-by shooting around 5 pm (2200 GMT).

With his death, the coalition government, with a one-seat hold on power here, has been plunged into crisis.

As the hearse bearing his body drove away, a crowd of around 200 people broke in spontaneous, sympathetic response.

Witnesses said Wiels, also a popular talk show host, was buying fish at a pier in Maripampoen when two cars pulled alongside and pumped five rounds into his body.
