Mexican drug cartel hiring "pretty young hit women" to surprise rivals

By Samyuktha

London, Aug 18 (ANI): A Mexican drug gang is reportedly hiring "pretty young women" to carry out killings to surprise its enemies.

Rogelio Amaya, a suspected member of the vicious gang, has revealed that around 30 women aged between 18 and 30 years have carried out killings in recent months accompanied by hit men.

"They're pretty, good-looking, to help mislead opponents," The Telegraph quoted a suspected Juarez cartel member, as saying.hese disguised women carry out dangerous operations just like their male counterparts, and routinely use both light and heavy weapons, the report added

Mexico's drug battles have left a trail of blood and fear across the country, with 2,660 suspected drug murders being reported in the city of Ciudad Juarez in 2009, and some 1,860 having been reported so far, this year.

More than 28,000 people have died in suspected drug violence since the end of 2006, when Mexico's President Felipe Calderon launched a controversial military crackdown on organised crime. (ANI)
