Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and Security Minister Alfonso Durazo Montaño responded to the attack on nine US Mormons by a suspected drug cartel at a press conference in Mexico City on Tuesday morning.
The security minister offered a chronological report of the events, detailing the attack by suspected members of an organised crime group on a convoy of vehicles carrying the LeBaron family.
According to Durazo, the convoy "may have been confused by the criminal groups that dispute the control in the region”, before adding that "the minors rescued are, in general, luckily in good condition, except for a minor who has a gunshot wound at her back, but fortunately she is out of danger.”
As for Lopez Obrador, he sent his condolences to the relatives of the victims of what he described as a “sad misfortune, because innocent children were killed” and stated that “we will do what we are supposed to do in these cases and what is our obligation, to collect all the information to know the cause and to arrest those guilty, so justice can be done.”
He also assured that he would talk by telephone with Trump to "thank him for his support" and inform him that "we do not need in this case the intervention of a foreign government."
Nine people including several children who were traveling in a convoy between the states of Chihuahua and Sonora were killed as a result of the attack by an armed group, according to the security minister. The victims were members of Colonia LeBaron, a Mormon settlement established in the region over 90 years ago.
