Five People Including Mayor Killed During Protest in Mexican Town
MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) — The attackers, armed with assault rifles and hand guns, broke into two houses belonging to one family before killing five adults, one six year old girl and a 14 year old boy, Heredia told reporters on Saturday.

A two year old baby survived the attack, while four more children were able to escape to a nearby dumping ground and also survived.

The Guerrero state has one of Mexico's highest crime rates. Forty three students disappeared in Mexico’s Guerrero state in September, 2014. They were abducted and killed after participating in a protest against discriminatory hiring and funding practices in the city of Iguala.
