Drug-Related Killings Rage On In Mexico

The drug war in Mexico, that has spilled over into the U.S., rages on as more than 17 people have been killed in the state of Nuevo Leon, 10 in a brazen daylight attack that targeted a Corona Beer distribution center. According to witnesses, the gunmen arrived in two vehicles, forced their employees to take off all of their clothes, before opening fire and killing them.

Mexican officials are saying that this shooting is probably drug related, as weapons and drugs packed for distribution were found at the crime scene. Officials also believe that the victims had ties to drug trafficking, as several witnesses to the murders, who were not affiliated to the drug trade were left unharmed.

In another part of the province, three woman and a man were found dead inside a home. The man was found beheaded.
