Five of a family killed in Mexico drug warOctober 7th, 2010 - 8:08 am ICT by IANS
Mexico City, Oct 7 (IANS/EFE) Gunmen murdered five members of a family in Mexico City, in what may have been a “settling of scores” between rival drug traffickers, a senior official has said.
“Some indications have been found inside the residence that point to an issue related to ‘narco-retailing’. They tell us of possible direct revenge against this family,” district attorney Miguel Angel Mancera said.
The gunmen murdered Clemente Sanchez Salinas, a 51-year-old seller of bags and raincoats, and took the other four people in a vehicle, which was later found with the bodies of three men and a woman, the district attorney said.
Those people were apparently a group of drug dealers who owed money to others and “this is how these people respond”, he said. “These are the consequences of drug dealing.”
