7 girls raped at prayer retreat

2012-07-15 08:30

Mexico City - A group of gunmen has attacked a juvenile religious retreat outside of the Mexican capital, raping seven underage girls and beating and robbing several others, Mexican officials said on Saturday.

A statement by the prosecutor's office said the attack, which occurred last Thursday night, targeted a juvenile prayer camp located at Colibri Park outside of Mexico City.

About 90 young boys and girls were camping at the retreat, dedicating their time to prayer and religious studies, the officials said.

The attackers, which included about a dozen armed individuals, "sexually assaulted seven underage girls and beat several other people," said the statement.

They also took away their valuables, including watches, jewellery and cellular phones.

Most of the victims had been staying and praying at the camp since Monday.

Mexico is in the throes of a violent crime wave spawned by a drug war that has been continuing for over six years.

More than 50 000 people have died since President Felipe Calderon deployed the army and federal police to crack down on the country's powerful drug gangs in December 2006.

      Sorry, but this whole god-bashing this is unreasonable. Not many people know this, but the devil made god do it.

      I always find it amazing that the people who believe in the existence of this god do not see the frightful irony in the fate of these people who got together specifically to praise and flatter him. A useless god to praise if ever there was one.

    The USA must stop wasting time in the middle east and concentrate on their doorstep.

      antin.herinck - 2012-07-15 21:17

      Correct they must first precision-bomb the most violent Mexican gang-ridden areas and then they must do it to the regimes is any country that ends with -stan, (ex-BantuStan excluded) North Korea, Most of the Middle East, Zimbabwe and Cuba. Oh and Venezuela as well. Did I forget any? (Any oppressive / commie-regime, invariably mates of the ANC.)

      margie.swanepoel - 2012-07-15 12:31

      Hi Harold, I am a loving parent who cares and loves my children. I have over the years loved and cared for 16 children in total, can promise you, I never hit or hurt one of them, let alone allowed a stranger to hurt them. I know have grandchildren who I will also protect with the last breath in my body if I had to. If there is any way I can protect my children, foster children and their children from harm I would do it. That is called love!!
