Mexico: AMLO confirms six Mexicans among the 20 dead in El Paso shooting

Mexico, Michoacan
August 05, 2019 at 01:28 GMT +00:00 · Published

Mexican President Alejandro Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) confirmed that six of the 20 killed in the shooting in El Paso on July 4th are Mexican citizens, while speaking to the community of Huetamo Rural Hospital in Michoacan on Sunday.

Obrador said that the Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard would announce the position of Mexico regarding the attack. He clarified that he asked Ebrard to act with great responsibility "despite the pain and the outrage," and not to “interfere in the internal affairs of other countries” referring to the US election campaign.

Later, Ebrard declared that they consider the shooting a terror attack against the Mexican community in the US, and therefore they are considering the option of presenting a lawsuit of terrorism against Mexican citizens in the US, which could allow them to have access to all the information of the investigation.
