Ciudad Juarez: Gunmen burst into a
party in this violence-wracked Mexican border city and shot to
death 12 young people and wounded at least 10 others, police
said on Saturday.

"We have an initial toll of 12 dead and more than 10
wounded who have been taken to different hospitals", a
municipal police official said, speaking on condition of
anonymity.

Local media said 15 people were killed and 18 wounded,
but that toll could not be independently verified.

The massacre occurred during the intervening night of
Friday and Saturday at a party in a residential district known
as Horizontes del Sur. Local media showed images of bodies
strewn among cars parked in the garage of a house.
