Mexico says mistaken identity behind killing
Mexico alleged on Wednesday that a drug cartel called La Linea (The Line) massacred nine Mormon women and children in a case of mistaken identity. The three women and six children, who had dual US-Mexican citizenship, were killed in a hail of bullets on Monday as they drove on a rural road between Sonora and Chihuahua, which borders the US. Eight other children escaped, six of them wounded. The case prompted US President Donald Trump to call for war on Mexican cartels. The head of Mexico’s joint chiefs of staff, Homero Mendoza, said authorities believe the cartel is based in Chihuahua. Relatives of those killed said they believed their family was the intended target.
