At least 26 people have been killed in a suspected firebomb attack at a bar in Mexico. A further 13 were left seriously injured after a fire took hold at the venue in the east coast port city of Coatzacoalcos, in the south of Veracruz state, according to local media reports.
As per details, an armed gang stormed the Caballo Blanco, or White Horse, nightclub in the Mexican city of Coatzacoalcos at around 10pm on Tuesday (August 27) night. They sealed the emergency exits before setting fire to the entrance hall and making their escape, apparently taking the establishment’s owner with them.
The attack on the strip club is the worst single act of violence since Andrés Manuel López Obrador took office in December with the promise that his term would bring a new era of peace.
