Mexican authorities said they have found four US citizens who were kidnapped in Mexico on Friday and that two of them have died. The two survivors – one of whom was injured – returned to the United States on Tuesday. The four were kidnapped shortly after they crossed the border with Mexico, while in the state of Tamaulipas, near the city of Matamoros, an area that the US State Department considers a “level four hazard,” the highest. A group of people shot at the white pickup truck with North Carolina plates they were riding in, then kidnapped them. A Mexican bystander was killed during the attack.

According to various American newspapers, the group of four would have consisted of a woman and three men, and the reason for the trip was to appoint one of the four to have plastic surgery. It is not uncommon for Americans who live near the border to go to Mexico to buy medicine or undergo surgeries for less money than they would in their own country. The motive for the attack on the minivan has yet to be determined, but one of the main suspects is that the group was mistakenly targeted during a Mexican organized crime operation.
