Gunmen kill five in northern Mexico
Ciudad Juarez: Authorities in northern Mexico say gunmen ambushed a pickup truck in the rugged mountains of Chihuahua state, killing five men.
Chihuahua state prosecutors` spokesman Carlos Gonzalez said on Thursday that two teenage boys are among the victims in the attack in the town of Guadalupe y Calvo.
Gonzalez says the assailants were waiting in a vehicle parked along a dirt road and opened fire as the pickup truck went by Wednesday night.
He says an eight-year-old boy was seriously wounded. The area where Guadalupe y Calvo is located is in Mexico`s "golden triangle" region. The area, which straddles Sinaloa, Durango and Chihuahua states, is known for drug cultivation and trafficking.
