MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico City officials say two more police officers have been arrested in connection with the May kidnapping and killing of 12 young people from an after-hours bar in the capital.
There are now three police officers in total among the 15 arrested in connection with the crime, which authorities have linked to rivalry between two gangs over the rights to sell drugs in bars and nightclubs in some upscale neighborhoods.
Officials say the mass slaying was revenge for one gang's killing of a dealer belonging to another gang.
The city attorney general's office said Monday that the two officers have been put under 30 days house arrest. Both were assigned to the Zona Rosa, the area of nightclubs and bars where the 12 young people were kidnapped from Bar Heaven.
