‘BRUTAL’

Two Teens With Migrant Caravan Murdered in Tijuana

Two teenagers traveling with a migrant caravan have been “brutally murdered” in the Mexican border city of Tijuana after an attempted robbery. Jorge Alberto Álvarez Mendoza, deputy attorney general in the state of Baja California, said the two boys, estimated to be ages 16 and 17, were stabbed and strangled. A third boy managed to escape. The Honduran government confirmed the teens were from Honduras and said it was working to have their bodies brought home. “At the moment, all we can say is that three boys were taken to a place,” said Alden Rivera, the Honduran ambassador to Mexico. “Two of them were brutally murdered, and one of them is a survivor of the incident, who is being protected by Mexican authorities.” The victims, who were staying at a shelter for migrant youths in Tijuana, were headed to another shelter when they were stopped by people who reportedly intended to rob them.
