Chaos and Fear in Ciudad Juarez After Massacre

La Opinin, Gardenia Mendoza Aguilar Posted: Feb 07, 2010

MEXICO, D.F.-- Parents and family members of 16 teenagers murdered in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, question an investigation conducted on the massacre by local authorities, according to a report in La Opinin.

Fear and confusion reigned after four witnesses to the massacre were taken from their homes by unidentified police officers, according to the daily. Family members said they thought they had been kidnapped by those responsible for the murders. But finally the state attorney general confirmed they were taken for questioning by law-enforcement.

Local police attributed the massacre to a gang called Los Aztecas, that has at least 5,000 youth among it ranks, according to the FBI. Public opinion was disconcerted over the culpability of the only person arrested in connection with the murders due to confusing declarations by authorities. They give us that information, because they want to wash their hands and lead as to believe that they are doing their jobs, said Jos Adrin Encinas, the uncle of one of the victims.
