15 Die in Attacks on Bars in Northern Mexican Industrial City

MEXICO CITY – At least 15 people were killed and seven others wounded in attacks early Sunday on bars in the northern Mexican industrial city of Monterrey, said the spokesman of the Nuevo Leon state Attorney General’s Office, Mario Perez.

The coordinated attacks targeted at least five bars across the Monterrey metropolitan area, the AG’s office spokesman said.

The attacks were presumably staged by Gulf cartel gunmen, who opened fire on patrons and employees, Perez said.

The bars that were attacked, according to the AG’s office, are purportedly linked to the Cartel del Noreste, formed by former members of the Zetas drug cartel.

In a separate attack in Nuevo Laredo, a border city in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas, the warden of the local prison, Humberto Vega Avalos, was shot dead by unidentified assailants, officials said.
