US consular employee killed in Mexico shooting
AFP - Unidentified killers have murdered an American employee of the US consulate in a Mexican border city along with her American husband and the husband of another consular employee, the White House said Sunday.

President Barack Obama "is deeply saddened and outraged by the news of the brutal murders of three people associated with the United States Consulate General in Ciudad Jurez," a national security council spokesman said.

Mike Hammer, the spokesman, said the dead included an American employee of the consulate, her American husband, and the husband of a Mexican consular employee.

The statement did not provide details of the incident in Ciudad Juarez, where more than 2,600 people were murdered last year in drug-related violence.
