CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico - A "night of terror" blamed on the 'Mexicles' drug gang left at least 9 dead and others wounded as numerous vehicles were set afire and/or sprayed with bullets late Tuesday and early Wednesday, Mexican media outlets reported.
In all, authorities told El Diario and El Mexicano that 16 vehicles in different parts of Juárez were set ablaze over a 10-hour period. The burned vehicles included cars, trucks and city buses - and some were also riddled with bullets.
In a Facebook post, Juárez Mayor Armando Cabada said the attacks were an attempt at revenge by the gang for a crackdown by authorities at a Juárez prison facility.
Mexican authorities said they were on alert for the potential of more gang violence.
