EP Times report on police killings; 5 more homicides yesterday in Juarez

The El Paso Times article below has a lot of detail on the killings of
the police officers Wednesday night in Juarez. Note the description of
the crime scene and the lack of protection of the scene; artifacts
left lying around; no security at the site of this mass murder.

Yesterday, March 29, there were 5 more murders in Juarez, including a
multiple homicide where three men were killed. The incident was
witnessed by numerous kids playing on the street at the time.

This would bring the monthly total for March to about 90. Saturday is
the last day of March, so hopefully Diario will post a real tally for
the month on Sunday.

Five Juarez Officers slain may have been set up
