More Nastiness in Torreón

For the third time this year, a group armed with machine guns fired indiscriminately on a party in Torreón last night:
According to initial investigations, in the quinta there was a party going one when minutes before the attack, various vehicles arrived at the site with armed men, who got down and without a word, opened fire on them, later fleeing in an unknown direction.
Seventeen were killed, 18 were injured in the event. The first two times something like this happened, there was very little reaction in the national or international media, for whatever reason. It's hard to imagine a scarier symptom of organized crime's presence in Mexico, so it'll be interesting to see if this gets more attention.
