MONTERRY, Mexico: At least seven people watching a football match have been shot dead in Mexico, sources said Saturday, adding to the country’s murder toll which last year hit a two-decade high.
The latest killings — after more than 25,000 last year — happened in Monterrey, an industrial hub in
the country’s northeast.
At least four hooded gunmen entered a home in the city and threatened about 20 people watching the
football, a source at the local prosecutor’s office told AFP.
Some were herded to a bathroom where they were gunned down, the source said, citing witnesses.—AFP
