Mexico: pastor targeted

A Mexican pastor who survived an assassination attempt in the notorious border city of Juarez in June said he was targeted because his church’s work is seen to negatively impact upon the efforts of drug cartels.

A hitman entered the pastor’s home, making him kneel down on the floor and telling him ‘you don’t know who you are messing about with’. The man then pulled the trigger on his gun, but it failed to fire, so he knocked the pastor unconscious and stole his wallet before fleeing.
