In a bloodbath in northern Mexico, at least six children and three women were brutally murdered on Monday. The victims are all part of a well-known Mormon cult that originates from the US. The Mormons have lived on the Mexican side of the border for decades.
The massacre took place during an already intense period of violence in Mexico. Mexico experiences an average of almost a hundred murders per day. Mexico is experiencing an unprecedented deadly year.
Three women from the LeBarón community traveled Monday morning with a number of children, spread over three minibuses, between the states in Chihuahua and Sonora. On a deserted mountain road they were probably ambushed by one of the gangs in the area. The criminals opened fire and set fire to at least one of the cars. The car had a baby in the child seats. Five older children managed to escape and safely reach the family estate.
Local media reported that the shooters blocked the road for hours, so the police couldn’t get to the crime scene until the end of the day. In the meantime, the government has sent reinforcements.
President Trump offered to help the Mexican government; “This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth”
