Drug, Migrant Trafficking Gangs 12 Miles From US Border Leaves 21 Dead

This area near Hermosillo, Mexico is a "prime corridor for immigrant and drug smuggling," and was the scene of a "massive gun battle between rival drug and migrant-trafficking gangs near the border," - in fact, only 12 miles from the US border just south of Tucson. Twenty-one are dead, six wounded and nine are in police custody.
