16 abducted from Mexican resort

16 abducted from Mexican resortArmed men burst into a restaurant in the Mexican beach resort of Puerto Vallarta and abducted as many as 16 customers early on Monday, according to local authorities.

Prosecutors in the western state of Jalisco said that gunmen entered a restaurant called La Leche on the resort city’s main boulevard, bundled the victims into SUVs and sped away.

At a news conference, Jalisco state prosecutor Eduardo Almaguer said the preliminary results of the investigation indicated that all the victims were members of “criminal organisations”.

He said authorities believe they know which groups were involved, but declined to name them.

In a message on Twitter, Jalisco governor Aristoteles Sandoval said such violence would not be tolerated and a search was under way for the victims and the kidnappers.

“To the residents and tourists of Puerto Vallarta, I inform you that we have reinforced security so that you can go on as usual,” Sandoval wrote.
