Mari­achis turn deadly

The Courier-Mail - - WORLD -

MEX­ICO CITY: Mex­i­cans head­ing to the week­end’s In­de­pen­dence Day cel­e­bra­tions were jolted by a brazen shoot­ing by men dressed as mari­achi mu­si­cians who killed five peo­ple and wounded eight in Garibaldi Plaza, a pop­u­lar square in the cap­i­tal where the bands ser­e­nade tourists.

The city pros­e­cu­tors’ of­fice said at least one for­eigner was among those wounded in Fri­day night’s at­tack by three gun­men. Sur­veil­lance video of the alleged as­sailants showed them wear­ing tra­di­tional em­broi­dered jack­ets and pants as they fled on mo­tor­cy­cles.
