Drug hitmen kill 17 at party in Mexico

And today brought more festivities from south of the Border .

The cartels did say that they would attack any Party regardless of what it is for !

(Reuters) - Suspected drug hitmen stormed a private party and killed 17 people in the northern Mexican city of Torreon on Sunday in one of the deadliest attacks in Mexico's drug war.

Gunmen in five SUVs drove up to the party in a walled patio and garden on the outskirts of the city in Coahuila state across from Texas, smashed down the door and opened fire with automatic rifles on party-goers at about 1 a.m/0500 GMT, Coahuila's prosecutor's office said.

"They came in, opened fire and shot against everything that moved," said an official at the prosecutor's office who declined to be identified. "Without saying a word to anyone, they shot at them and fled," the office said in a statement.
