Mexico: When the army becomes your police force

Go to this link at Pan American Post and read “Witnesses: Mexican Soldiers Killed 21 in June Massacre”. Here are some excerpts:

Mexican authorities have persistently stuck to the official version of events. On July 17, Mexico State Attorney General Jaime Gomez Sanchez assured reporters that there was “no evidence whatsoever” that the 21 victims were executed. 
But this story became harder to defend this week…..only one suspect was killed in a shootout, which broke out after soldiers opened fire first. The rest surrendered, but were then killed after being interrogated. A medical examiner who carried out an autopsy on one of the victims, a 15-year-old girl, told Esquire that her wounds were the result of a point-blank execution. 
In addition…the army killed two men claiming to be kidnapping victims, as they were apparently unconvinced of their stories.
Full thing here, without doubt today’s must-read LatAm story.
