Four cab driv­ers killed in Mex­i­can tourist des­ti­na­tion

Cape Breton Post - - Religion/advice/games -

MEX­ICO CITY — Four taxi driv­ers have been killed in the pic­turesque central Mex­i­can town of San Miguel de Al­lende, a pop­u­lar tourism des­ti­na­tion that is home to thou­sands of Amer­i­can re­tirees.

Mayor Ricardo Vil­lar­real says the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the Wed­nes­day night mur­ders is on­go­ing, but it ap­pears to be a “score set­tling” within the world of street-level drug sales. Vil­lar­real said a Thurs­day in­ter­view with Ra­dio Formula be­ing a tourist des­ti­na­tion San Miguel gives a mar­ket for drugs. He char­ac­ter­izes the mur­ders as tar­geted, not ran­dom at­tacks and says his city re­mains a safe place.

He says the taxis ap­par­ently were all called to the lo­ca­tion on the out­skirts where the driv­ers were killed in their cabs. A state­ment from the city says two other men were wounded.
