8 killed yesterday April 24 in Juarez; 83 so far in April; 392 for the year

Eight people were murdered yesterday in Juarez, including 3 men and a woman
shot to death in an open area outside of the city just off the Pan American
highway near the San Rafael cemetery.  The article says that one young
woman who survived the attack came out to the highway and signaled drivers
for help.  None of the victims in this multiple homicide are named in the
article. Also, another victim of a shooting on Monday died in the hospital.
I will add 9 people to the tally from yesterday, bringing the April number
to 83 and for the year 2012, at least 392. molly
