BREITBART — CIUDAD VICTORIA — Cartel gunmen lobbed a grenade near a packed kindergarten class as the children were outside celebrating a special event. The explosive device did not go off, but caused terror in this city that for weeks has been subjected to unending violence between rival factions of Los Zetas.
The grenade attack took place on Thursday morning when a group of cartel gunmen threw the grenade at a house in the Teocaltiche neighborhood. The house is right next to a kindergarten where the children had been holding their “Dia del Niño” or Day of the Children celebration. In response to the explosive device, the Mexican army evacuated the school as military personnel went into the house to retrieve the grenade. The celebration at the school was cancelled and the children sent home.
The attack near the school came just two days after a team of cartel gunmen rained gunfire at a business called “Casino Magnific” injuring five customers. The gambling parlor is just 500 yards from the governor’s mansion. The gunmen managed to flee in two separate vehicles eluding authorities who responded to the scene.Medical personnel rushed the injured customers to local hospitals, their condition remains unknown.
