CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico – Mexican authorities on Friday said 25 people have been killed in a series of drug-gang shootings in Ciudad Juarez, marking the deadliest day in three years for the border city.

Prosecutors' spokesman Arturo Sandoval said that in the worst attack, gunmen burst into a house and killed two young men — then killed four other people just for being witnesses.

Sandoval spoke Friday about the death toll Thursday. He said it was the deadliest day in three years in the city across the border from El Paso, Texas.

Ciudad Juarez has become one of the world's most dangerous cities amid a battle for drug trafficking routes between the Sinaloa and Juarez cartels.
