A Mexican drug gang is hiring pretty young women to carry out killings to surprise its enemies, a suspected member of the vicious La Linea gang said in a video.
Around 30 women aged between 18 and 30 years have learned in recent months to carry out killings accompanied by hitmen, and most have killed people, suspect Rogelio Amaya said during a interrogation by federal police. The video of the interrogation was made public on Tuesday.
“They’re pretty, good-looking, to help mislead opponents,” said Amaya, the suspected member of a gang of enforcers for the Juarez cartel in the country’s most violent city of Ciudad Juarez.
The women operate in the same way as men and carry both light and heavy weapons, the suspect said.
The revelations came as Mexico’s drug battles leave a trail of blood and fear across the country, particularly in Ciudad Juarez.
At least 18 suspected drug-related deaths were reported between Monday and Tuesday in Ciudad Juarez.
Right. I do not visit Ciudad Juarez – for any reason – anymore.
