Monterrey (Mexico): Authorities say gunmen have attacked a bar near the northern Mexico city of Monterrey, killing at least five people.

A police official in Nuevo Leon state says at least seven people arrived by taxi at the Jhonny`s Place bar in the municipality of Guadalupe and opened fire late yesterday night. They then fled in the same taxis.

The official says investigators suspect the motive may have been a settling of accounts among criminals or reprisal against a businessman who failed to pay a bribe.

The official spoke today on condition of anonymity for reason of personal security.
