Mexico: 11 kidnapped in broad daylight
Mass kidnapping from Mexico City bar as 11 youths are abducted in broad daylight
Eleven young people were brazenly kidnapped in broad daylight from an after-hours bar in Mexico City’s Zona Rosa, a normally calm district of offices, restaurants, drinking spots and dance clubs, anguished relatives claim.
The apparent mass abduction purportedly happened sometime between 10am and noon on Sunday morning just off the Paseo de la Reforma, the city’s main boulevard, near the Angel of Independence monument and in the same district as the U.S. Embassy.
The incident was the second recent high-publicity blemish for the city’s largely unregulated entertainment scene, coming 20 days after the grandson of American civil rights activist Malcolm X was beaten to death at another bar in the downtown area.
