8 shark fish­er­men from same fam­ily shot dead

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Gun­men burst into a home and killed eight shark fish­er­men from the same fam­ily in Mex­ico’s Pa­cific beach re­sort of Puerto Es­con­dido. The armed group ar­rived in a ve­hi­cle, stormed the house and opened fire with high-cal­i­bre weapons in the south­ern state here. “Four men died at the scene and four more, also males, died in a hos­pi­tal dur­ing treat­ment,” Joaquin Car­rillo Ruiz, the chief prose­cu­tor, said in Oax­aca. The vic­tims were all fish­er­men who caught sharks, but the prose­cu­tor’s of­fice said in­ves­ti­ga­tors were look­ing at whether they were in­volved in il­licit ac­tiv­i­ties.
