MEXICO CITY (AP) — An activist representing relatives of women slain or missing in the border city of Ciudad Juarez has been attacked for the second time in two months.

Mexico City prosecutors say Norma Andrade was walking her granddaugther to school Friday morning when a man carrying a knife attacked her.

The city Attorney General's Office issued a statement saying she was treated hospital for a cut on her face, and it says she did not know the reason for the attack.

Andrade had come to Mexico City for safety after being shot twice outside her Ciudad Juarez home in December.

Andrade founded an organization of relatives of women who have gone missing or been murdered in Ciudad Juarez. Her 17-year-old daughter was tortured, raped and killed in 2001.
