3 Mexican soldiers charged with homicide in June killing of 22

Mexico’s attorney general says three soldiers have been charged with homicide in the June 30 killing of 22 suspected gang members.

Jesus Murillo Karam said Tuesday that the soldiers opened fire on criminal suspects “without any justification whatsoever.”

Last week, it was announced that seven soldiers and an officer were detained in the incident under the military justice system.

Those proceedings are separate from any civil criminal prosecution.
