      DENVER (AP) - Authorities say a man from Gabon has died in while in the custody of U.S. immigration officials in Colorado. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says 46-year-old Evalin-Ali Mandza died Thursday at a suburban Denver hospital, where he was taken after complaining of chest pains.

      Immigration spokesman Carl Rusnok says a coroner will determine the cause of death. Rusnok says Mandza entered the U.S. in 1996 on a visitor visa, which is usually valid for a matter of months. ICE detained him in October after he was released from a Colorado jail. Rusnok did not know why Mandza had been jailed but said it wasn't a violent crime. Rusnok says Gabon officials have been notified.

      ICE says Mandza is the seventh detainee to die in its custody since Oct. 1.
