Mexican authorities say 25 people have been killed in a series of drug-gang shootings in Ciudad Juarez, marking the deadliest day in three years for the border city.

Prosecutors' spokesman Arturo Sandoval says that in the worst attack, gunmen burst into a house and killed two young men — then killed four other people just for being witnesses.
