Narcos With Machine Guns Open Fire on Home of Mexico Newspaper Editor

MEXICO CITY -- A group of individuals shot with AK-47 assault rifles at the home of the editor of El Debate, a newspaper published in the northwestern Mexican state of Sinaloa, the daily reported Tuesday.

No one was hurt in the 3 a.m. attack on Moises Garcia Castro's home in the town of Guasave, El Debate said.

At the scene of the shooting 12 spent bullet shells were found. Four of the shots hit the inside of the house and two others hit the house next door.

Neighbors reported that they could hear a vehicle make a fast getaway after the shots were fired.

Sinaloa, seat of the powerful drug cartel of the same name, was the scene of 950 of the more than 5,600 gangland murders reported nationwide last year, according to a tally kept by Mexico City daily El Universal.

Threats from drug traffickers are the main reason why Mexican media have stepped up security in some states and demand that the authorities end impunity for crime.

According to Paris-based Reporters Without Borders, last year four journalists were slain in Mexico while dozens more were threatened. EFE
