Latest Mexican Grenade Attack Injures 12

From an unfazed Reuters:

Grenade attack in Mexico injures 12 people

By Robin Emmott Sun Oct 3, 2010

MONTERREY, Mexico (Reuters) – Assailants tossed a grenade into a square in Mexico’s northern business city of Monterrey on Saturday, injuring 12 people in an attack the government blamed on drug gangs.

Unidentified men on foot threw the grenade from the edge of a square where people had gathered on a warm autumn night in the municipality of Guadalupe, which is part of Monterrey, police said.

"Assailants"? "Unidentified men"? — It took more than one man to throw the grenade?

Four children were among the injured…

The explosion was the fourth from a grenade during the weekend in Monterrey, one of Latin America’s premier business cities. No one was injured in the earlier attacks…

Mexico’s Interior Ministry condemned the incident and promised a crackdown. It blamed organized crime for the grenade attack in a reference to drug cartels vying for smuggling routes into the United States and Mexico’s lucrative home-grown drug markets

How does killing innocent civilians help the drug cartels with their smuggling routes?

One of the three grenade attacks on Friday across Monterrey came in the center of the city near the U.S. consulate, which had been targeted at least twice with grenades in 2009

This is starting to sound more and more familiar.

In September 2008, a drug gang killed eight revelers in a grenade attack on Independence Day celebrations in the city of Morelia in western Mexico, raising the specter of what the Mexican media called "narco-terrorism."

Why doesn’t our media call this terrorism, and without the quotes? The next thing you know Reuters will be calling these savages ‘insurgents.’

By the way, has our State Department bothered to warn tourists about visiting Mexico – and our own side of the Mexican border?
