June 13, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Half a dozen masked gunmen hijacked a bus carrying 33 Cuban and four Central American migrants detained in southern Mexico after they forced unarmed immigration agents away, the National Immigration Institute said.

An immigration official initially said 34 Cubans had been involved. The bus was later discovered, empty, near the jungle city of Ocosingo. The official said he did not know who carried out the attack or why.
