Mormons in Mexico bury last victim of ambush

Members of the Lebaron family watch the burned car where part of the nine murdered members of the family were killed and burned during an gunmen ambush on Bavispe Sonora mountains Mexico

Relatives said Devin reached the community six hours after the attack.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador thanked Trump but said Mexico would handle the cartels with "independence and sovereignty".

While the sibling community of Colonia LeBaron has been peaceful since the 2009 murder of one of its members and subsequent installation of a security base, La Mora lacks such a presence - at least until Monday's killings prompted state and federal forces to deploy to protect those who came to mourn. Many La Mora residents call themselves Mormons but are not affiliated with the church.

Mexico has been hit by a wave of violence since 2006, the year the government controversially deployed the army to fight drug cartels.

"Angry kin of American taxpayers massacred at a suspected gangland ambush in northern Mexico encouraged the authorities to take US aid to ruin drug cartels that one grieving comparative defined as being" as bad or worse compared to ISIS". While some of the splinter groups were once polygamous, many no longer are.

"My younger boys went to school with two of those boys".

"This is so beyond comprehension, we're living like we're in Afghanistan, 100 miles from the USA border", said LeBaron. "It was heartbreaking to hear their cries and sadness". In the attack Monday, Langford Johnson jumped out of her vehicle and waved her hands to show she was no threat to the attackers and was shot twice in the heart, community members say.

Faith Marie was reunited with her father after surviving a gun ambush by a drug cartel. She was found on the floor of the vehicle in her baby seat.

Kenny Miller, Rhonita Miller's father-in-law, said she was "like an angel" and the children "little angels".

Langford, 43, was buried Thursday morning along with her sons Trevor, 11, and Rogan, two - the first of several funerals to be held over two days.


Of the children who escaped, one was shot in the face, another in the foot.

Hitmen opened fire on the three mothers and 14 children travelling from a village in Sonora to meet with relatives in neighbouring Chihuahua state and Phoenix, Ariz. She was listed as missing for a while.

A group of male relatives set out to try to rescue the youngsters but turned back when they heard gunfire ahead.

More than 250,000 Mexicans have been killed in the mounting violence that has gripped the country since 2007, many of them victims of drug related violence. "ISIS have an ideology", said Rosa LeBaron, 65, whose cousins, nieces and nephews died in the attacks.

"The truth is we aren't safe here as a community", Langford said.

Trump tweeted that a "wonderful family" got "caught between two vicious drug cartels".

If Mexico wants or demands help in wiping out these monsters, the United States stands ready, ready & able to get concerned and do the work quickly and effectively. "By declaring war?" he said after the attacks.

Later, the two leaders spoke by telephone, and Trump offered US assistance "to ensure the perpetrators face justice", the White House said without giving details. Although family members said they believe the victims were targeted.

It was the second failure in recent weeks for López Obrador's "hugs not bullets" anti-crime strategy.

Mexican authorities have announced that one man who may have been involved in the killings has been taken into custody. The suspect had assault rifles and a.50-calibre sniper rifle and was holding two bound kidnap victims, authorities said.
