Mario Mercado Vaca Guzman, 67, whose business empire included Bolivia's largest gold mining company, a daily newspaper and the national soccer team, died Saturday in a plane crash near the mining town of Oruro. He was a former mayor of La Paz, former senator and leader of the National Democratic Action party; publisher of the La Paz daily Ultima Hora, one of Bolivia's most-respected newspapers; and president of the Bolivar soccer team, which sent several players to last year's World Cup competition in the United States.
