    2 tour buses full of French and German tourists were reportedly assaulted.

    "Oaxaca, Mexico: Bradley Will, American reporter, shot from above at close range then executed at point blank range 15 minutes later... His body was abandoned in the back of a pickup left outside the amphitheater of the State Attorney General."
