MEXICO CITY — The national coordinator of Mexico's battle against organized crime was slain Thursday by an assassin hiding in his home in what appeared to be the latest revenge killing by one of the country's most notorious drug cartels.

Edgar Millan Gomez, 41, was the third leading federal security official to be killed in Mexico City in a week.
