Two Americans Who Survived Kidnapping in Mexico Escorted to Border

Date:

Photos have come out which show the two Americans who survived the recent kidnapping in Mexico being handed into the care of US authorities at the border.

The kidnapped took place on March 3rd when gunmen in the Mexican border city of Matamoros held up four Americans who were traveling in their car.

The four Americans were then kidnapped and two were killed.

An American official familiar with the investigation told CNN that the Americans were likely mistaken to be a group of Haitian drug smugglers and attacked by cartel gunmen. 

Reportedly, the bodies of the two killed were also handed off at the border.
