Fifteen killed in northern Mexican bar shootout

CIUDAD JUAREZ - Fifteen people were killed and at least one seriously wounded in a suspected drug-related shootout on Friday in a bar in northern Mexico, a region that has been brutalized by fighting between criminal gangs.
Armed men entered the bar in Chihuahua, capital of Chihuaha state, and opened fire on a group of people inside suspected of involvement in drug dealing, the local attorney general's office said in a statement on Saturday.
The office said two other people died in a separate bar attack in the city, bringing the death toll for Friday night to 17.
