El Paso Times
JUAREZ Y REFORMA, Mexico - Gunmen opened fire on three buses carrying maquiladora workers early Thursday, killing three women and a man and injuring 15 others.

The buses were traveling about 1 a.m. from an industrial park in Juárez to the rural Valley of Juárez, a region under siege by drug cartels.

Between 30 and 40 people were in each bus after working the night shift for Eagle Ottawa Co., a leather factory. The buses typically make several stops between Juárez and El Porvenir, a town near Fort Hancock, Texas...

An unspecified number of gunmen launched the attack during a stop in Juárez y Reforma, a small, sparsely populated area in the municipality of Guadalupe Bravos, about 30 miles southeast of Juárez. Bullets left holes the size of quarters in the buses. More than 20 rounds hit each bus, police said.
