5th US Citizen Killed this Week in Ciudad Juarez

MEXICO / 12 NOV 2010 BY GEOFFREY RAMSEY EN

The Associated Press reports that a fifth US citizen has been killed this week in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, the embattled city across from El Paso, Texas. 

Forty-seven US citizens have been killed in Mexico in 2010, including 13 in Ciudad Juarez. The circumstances of the murders vary but the article says “Few of the victims seem to have been targeted as US citizens.” The dead include Lesley A. Enriquez and her husband, Arthur H. Redelfs, who were shot by suspected members of the Aztecas gang in March after a car chase that ended in front of the mayor’s office in Ciudad Juarez.
