NEW YORK POST:

Mexican officials have confirmed an “unspecified number” of arrests in connection to last week’s cartel massacre that left nine Mormon women and kids dead.

“There have been arrests, but it’s not up to us to give information,” Security Minister Alfonso Durazo told reporters Monday.

Prosecutors in Sonora, as well as at the federal level, are leading the investigation, according to Durazo.

But a spokeswoman for the state government of Sonora told Reuters, “We don’t have that information.”

Three women, 8-month-old twins and four other children were killed in the Nov. 4 bloodbath in the border state of Sonora, near where they worship with Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The families were members of La Mora, a decades-old settlement in Sonora founded as part of an offshoot of the mainline Mormon church.
