Eleven miners shot dead in San Dimas, Mexico

I missed this news over the weekend, reader G gave me the headsup on it this morning, thanks due G.

On Saturday evening a group of 16 people were ambushed while travelling back to their place of work at the Grupo Bacis mine near San Dimas, Durango, Mexico. Eleven of them were shot dead by their assailants, five were injured. The attack has all the hallmarks of the narcotrafficking gangs and (of course) comes just after the escape from prison of El Chapo Guzman.

For geographical (!!) purposes, the attack was very close to Primero Mining's (PPP) (P.to) San Dimas operation. Who will of course tell you that there's no problem if you ask them, but if you don't they'll take their normal attitude towards informing stakeholders about events (Hint: Mushroom).

Find lots and lots of news reports on the attack and its aftermath right here.
