The Federal militia In Monterrey, Mexico has deployed thousands of police officers and a half. Another fifteen thousand soldiers sent here the government army. In addition, as reported by Fox News, the town will be deployed in several combat helicopter "Black Hawk Down."
"We are not faced with ordinary offenders. We are dealing with real terrorists who fled all boundaries "- said President Felipe Calderon on national television, announcing a three-day mourning period. He said that the attack was the worst in recent history.
At Thursday, August 25, at the casino "Royal" in the northern town of Monterrey with a population of over 4 million man, broke eight or nine people with jerry cans in their hands. After two or three minutes the fire flared up in the building, and the attackers fled in four cars. This removed the surveillance camera.
Later militia found inside the body of 35 boys, 10 women and seven bodies of indeterminate sex — so much they burned, the newspaper said Detroit Press. People actually burned alive as when leaving, the attackers blocked the exits. Some died in the utility room and WC. As investigators believe, they fled from the firefight that ensued, the attackers broke into the casino — at some victims were found shot and wounded.
Sin shocked all of Mexico, as the dead were in no way implicated in the wars of the drug cartels, which are supposed to have arranged this execution. In this gaming club people walking in the main middle class — they have not dealt either to security forces or to the mafia.
A huge number of casualties was due to the same fact that the emergency exits were locked casino on the lock, which caused problems for the owners of the club. Company officials do not hide the names of Directors but authorities are convinced that the real owners of the business are not portrayed in the documents. Their identities are yet installed.
Already on Friday began raids on other casino Monterrey — day or two police officers found a violation of 12 gambling clubs except scorched, were confiscated about 1,500 slot machines.
Official versions of who may have committed a sin, the police has not yet put forward, but in Monterrey fighting for spheres of influence "Golfo cartel" and its former division "Los Zetas" — founded by former military and eventually became a true army, which has even languid arms . Mafia often engaged in extortion and not uncommon for a property nepokorlivyh entrepreneurs eventually burned in the fire for unknown reasons. But the administration casino "Royal" assures that no threats from the drug cartels is not received.
One of the main clues police — Identikit three of the attackers who managed to draw from the testimony of sixteen men who survived the attack. The President declared the merit of the size of 2.4 million dollars for information that will help reach the attackers. But as long as it did not bring fruit.
