Massacre in Monterrey Casino

August 26th, 2011

I am without words. This is the worst attack so far in the escalating war between drug cartels and the Mexican government. According to the video above, the attackers set fire to this casino as a retaliation for not giving in to extortion. 53 people were trapped inside by the explosions, and died, apparently from smoke inhalation.

A friend’s aunt is among the missing.
