CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) _ Gunmen broke into a drug rehab center and shot 17 people dead in the northern Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez.
Authorities say the attackers yesterday broke down the door of El Aliviane center, lined up their victims against a wall and opened fire. Arturo Sandoval with the regional prosecutors office says at least five people were injured.
Authorities had no immediate suspects or information on the victims. Juarez, across the border from El Paso, Texas, is Mexico's most violent city, with at least 1,400 people killed this year alone. Most of the homicides are tied to drug gang violence.
