    Mexico Massacre

    Drug cartel gunmen ambushed three SUVs along a dirt road, slaughtering six children and three women — all U.S. citizens living in northern Mexico — in a grisly attack that left one vehicle a burned-out, bullet-riddled hulk, authorities said Tuesday. Eight other children were found alive after escaping from the vehicles and hiding in the brush. The victims lived in a small town in Mexico founded decades ago by an offshoot of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. See more on the attack here.
