  • Mexican President André Manuel López Obrador has vowed that a group of soldiers who were caught on camera “executing” five alleged members of a criminal organization will be prosecuted.
  • The shocking video from May 18 showed the victims’ black pickup truck crashing at a high speed into the wall of a store in the border town of Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, across from Laredo, Texas. The military truck that was chasing it then crashed into the right side of the truck near the passenger door.
  • The men were forced out of the pickup, beaten, dragged across the dirt-covered ground, forced to kneel facing the wall and later shot before the soldiers tried to cover-up the scene.
