WASHINGTON — The ugly byproduct of Mexico’s drug war reared its head Sunday in the worst of ways: 10 students on their way to get government scholarships were murdered at a roadblock in the state of Durango apparently set up by drug traffickers, the Tribune Newspapers reported. Half the victims were 16 or under.

The news service reported that the gunmen opened fire and tossed grenades after the youths in a pick up truck apparently did not honor the road block.

The Tribune reported that the dead included three girls 8, 11 and 13.

Meanwhile,  authorities on Monday captured a suspect in the March 13  U.S. consulate shooting in Ciudad Juarez, a town that borders El Paso,  Tex., the Tribune reported.  The man is a leader of the the Barrio Azteca gang, which carries out executions for the Juarez drug cartel.

Mexican authorities made the arrest, acting on a tip from the FBI, the newspaper service reported.
