Armed attackers kidnap and kill 8
Armed attackers kidnapped and killed eight people in the Mexican town of Alto Lucero in Veracruz state. The bodies of the victims, seven men and one woman, were found after their abduction on August 19, according to prosecutors, who said the suspects were still on the loose. Armed gunmen raided several homes in the town, stealing “electrical appliances and other items of value” before the kidnappings, said a police source. Police have located and secured 12 vehicles which they believe were used during the robbery and killing spree.
