10 Killed in Mexican Border Attack

More troubles at Ciudad Juarez


A group of gunmen shot dead 10 people, including a six-year-old girl, on the outskirts of Ciudad Juarez, a troubled Mexican city on the U.S. border that has been wracked by violent drug traffickers.

The attorney general's office in Chihuahua state said on Monday seven men and two women died with the child after the gunmen pulled up in a vehicle and began shooting at the group, which was celebrating after a baseball game late on Sunday.

Ciudad Juarez has suffered from turf wars between ruthless drug cartels fighting for control of border smuggling routes. It was the most violent city in the country for several years until the death toll eased in 2012.
