    Gunmen burst into homes and opened fire on busy streets in an eruption of violence that has left more than two dozen dead in Juárez in recent days.

    Juárez and Chihuahua state police officials on Saturday announced they had arrested three suspects linked to a rash of homicides that began Thursday.

    Authorities said that the bloodshed was believed to be linked to fighting between criminal groups.

    The wave of violence began with a dozen killings within two hours Thursday night, including a quadruple homicide and two triple-homicides.

    El Mexicano newspaper reported 15 homicides Thursday and another 10 Friday, including a shooting during morning rush hour at a traffic light near the Puente Rotario.

    "We are busy and worried without a doubt. We have various interpretations of what happened and what is happening," Juárez Mayor Armando Cabada told reporters Friday.


    Drug cartel-related violence has raged in various parts of Chihuahua state in the last year in battles between groups affiliated with the Juárez and Sinaloa cartels.

        You left off the last part of the sentence so I fixed it for you.

        All kidding aside, those are atrocious numbers. Given the increased demands for illegal drugs, I expect that level of violence to increase here, especially along the drug transportation corridors.
