To cries of “Kill them all!” gunmen opened fire at a weekend birthday party Sunday, mowing down at least 17 people in an attack that laid bare the brutality of Mexico’s long-running drug war.

A dozen people were also wounded as the killers sprayed more than 200 bullets indiscriminately at the private celebration outside Torreon, an industrial city in the northern state of Coahuila.

Sunday’s attack brought the number of victims across the country, which has been blighted by drug-related violence since President Felipe Calderon launched a 2006 crackdown on the cartels, to at least 57 just in the past weekend.

The attack began at around 1:30 am (0630 GMT) as the murder squad rolled up at the popular rental venue in the usually calm suburb of Torreon, said Fernando Olivas, a Coahuila state government official.

“A heavily armed hit squad arrived and cried ‘Kill them all!’ and they started shooting,” a Coahuila police source told AFP, citing a witness. Most of those gunned down were in their 20s and 30s.
