Retribution as gunmen execute the family of a marine involved in the raid that killed a powerful Mexican drug lord.
Tuesday, gunmen executed the mother, brother and sister just hours after the funeral of the marine, who died of wounds suffered during the strike that killed cartel boss Arturo Beltran Leyva and five of his bodyguards last week.
Hours after the funeral, gunmen burst into the family's house just before midnight and fired assault rifles in what appeared to be a revenge attack for last week's military operation.
