Mexican law enforcement authorities have arrested suspects in the massacre of nine American women and children according to a Washington Post article featured in the Stars and Stripes publication.
The nine Americans were killed in an attack last month by suspected members of a gang.
Authorities did not reveal the identities of the suspects who were arrested.
According to the Daily Mail, the arrests were made in a joint operation launched by members of the military and intelligence community.
The confirmation of the arrests was made by Mexico's Attorney-General.
Mexico continues to grapple with deadly violence caused by gangs operating in various parts of the country.
President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has made combating insecurity a major part of his agenda as Mexico's head of state.
Members of the LeBron family whose members were brutally killed in the November attack called on action to be taken to end the violence.
“We have to work together to find a way to stop the violence,” Julián LeBarón, a relative of the victims, told The Associated Press. “If we’re not capable of defending life in our country, we will never be a civilized country much less a free country.”
The Mexican government is keen on showing that it is making gains in resolving the murder of 9 Americans that shocked the world.
