US helps Mexico seek suspects who killed 10 people near border
CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AFP) - The United States is helping Mexican police track down two suspects responsible for killing 10 people who were celebrating a baseball victory near the border, Mexican officials said.
Two gunmen armed with assault rifles opened fire on a group of 30 people in a house near the amateur baseball field on the outskirts of Ciudad Juarez late Sunday, killing four minors and six adults, authorities said.
"We have the collaboration of US authorities to find the whereabouts of those responsible for the Loma Blanca massacre," Chihuahua state Governor Cesar Duarte said during a visit in Ciudad Juarez, which borders Texas.
The victims included a six-year-old girl.
