11 killed by gunmen at party in central Mexico

Authorities in central Mexico say gunmen burst into a party and opened fire, killing seven men and four women.

The Public Safety Department in the state of Hidalgo says in a statement that the killings occurred early Thursday in a house near Tizayuca, just north of Mexico City.

The motive in the killing remains under investigation. The area had largely been spared the violence affecting other parts of Mexico.
