MEXICO CITY (AP) Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador prayed for the safety of the country with the relatives of nine U.S. dual citizens slaughtered in northern Mexico last month and assured them at least four suspects have been detained, a family member said.
Julian LeBaron said that during the familys Monday meeting with López Obrador and his Cabinet at Mexico Citys National Palace, the president pledged to visit the region where the Nov. 4 massacre took place.
