Kidnap pair is killed by mob

Mexican authorities revealed a mob has beaten two alleged kidnappers to death in the northern border state of Chihuahua.

Dozens of angry people in the town of Asencion beat the two men yesterday until federal police intervened, officials said.

Officers put the men in their patrol car but the crowd blocked them from leaving and the men died of their wounds inside the car.

The two men and three others are suspected in the kidnapping of a 17-year-old girl from Asencion.

Hoff is first out of dance show

Baywatch star David Hasselhoff found the ballroom a harder environment than the beach.

The 58-year-old entertainer (above) was the first celebrity voted off the new season of Dancing With the Stars, the US equivalent of Strictly Come Dancing.

Hasselhoff and his professional partner, Kym Johnson, were ousted from competition after performing just one dance.
