U.S.-manufactured ammunition used in massacre of Mormon family in Mexico

Mexico City, November 7 (RHC)-- In Mexico, new details are emerging about the massacre of the American-Mexican Mormon family in the northern state of Sonora.  Three women and six children were killed when gunmen ambushed their SUVs as they traveled along the highway.  Experts have determined that the ammunition used in the attack was manufactured in the United States by the American weapons manufacturer Remington. 

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has announced he’s impaneling an investigation.  López Obrador ran on a campaign promise of ending Mexico’s U.S.-backed drug war and improving security.  But the homicide rate this year is on track to hit a record high, possibly threatening public support for the president’s long-term strategy of reducing cartel violence through social and educational programs. 

About 100 people are murdered every day in Mexico. Six of the children wounded in the attack are recovering in a Tuscon hospital.
