    Attackers not confused; they knew they were killing women, children: LeBarón
    The attackers who killed three women and six children near the Sonora-Chihuahua border on Monday didn’t mistake their victims for members of a rival gang, say family members, but federal authorities say evidence shows otherwise.

    Security Secretary Alfonso Durazo said on Tuesday that the three SUVs in which members of the LeBarón family were traveling may have been mistaken by a criminal organization for those of a rival gang. A splinter cell of the Sinaloa Cartel known as Los Salazar is known to operate in the area as is La Línea, which has links to the Juárez Cartel.

    Today, a senior military official suggested a cell of the latter was sent to the area where members of the LeBarón family were killed after a confrontation Monday in Agua Prieta between the two gangs.

    At the morning press conference in the National Palace, Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said that, as part of the mutual legal assistance treaties, the FBI will have access to the investigation of the attack, but, he said, the Attorney General's Office will determine if he asks its collaboration in it, beyond the responsibility of tracking the origin of the weapons.
