MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – The Mexican authorities invited the FBI on Sunday to take part in its investigation into an assault in northern Mexico that killed 9 twin residents of the USA and Mexico.
Mexico’s Overseas Ministry stated in a press release it prolonged the invitation by a diplomatic word to the U.S. Embassy in Mexico.
“The Mexican authorities reiterates its dedication to research the info, so as to … provide justice to the affected households,” the ministry stated.
The U.S. brokers should work in coordination with their Mexican counterparts and won’t be armed, it added.
The FBI didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark.
On Monday, gunmen killed three ladies and 6 kids from a breakaway Mormon group in northern Mexico, prompting U.S. President Donald Trump to supply Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador assist in wiping out drug gangs he blamed for the ambush.
