A gang of hooded men in green uniforms gunned down 12 people, including two 13-year-olds, in a mountain village in Mexico's Sinaloa state, officials said Thursday. Three other people were slain in another incident in the violence-plagued state Thursday morning, state Atty. Gen. Ramon de Jesus Castro said. The deaths brought to 67 the number of people killed in the western state in just the first six weeks of the year, a police spokeswoman said.

WASHINGTON - Two of the weapons found after a drug cartel gunfight last month in Sinaloa, Mexico, that killed five people have been traced back to the U.S. - one lost during the ATF's Operation Fast and Furious, the other originally purchased by a supervisory ATF agent who helped oversee the botched gun-tracking operation. The discovery of the firearms - an AK-47 assault rifle and a 5.7-millimeter pistol - provides new evidence that some of the 2,000 weapons lost under Fast and Furious, and others as well, continue to flow freely across the U.S.-Mexico border and likely will be turning up at violent crime scenes for years to come.

Sixty reputed members of an Iraqi drug-trafficking organization in El Cajon have been arrested and authorities seized more than $630,000 in cash, 3,500 pounds of marijuana, dozens of high-powered firearms and several explosive devices, law enforcement officials said Thursday. The organization was run out of a social club and has suspected links to the ruthless Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico and an Iraqi organized crime syndicate in Detroit, according to law enforcement officials. The social club, located on East Main Street, has been a "hub of criminal activity conducted by Iraqi organized crime," El Cajon police Chief Pat Sprecco said.
