Canadian killed in area of Mexico embroiled in drug violence
A Canadian citizen was shot dead in a shopping district in the city of Culiacan, northwest Mexico, in unclear circumstances, police said Monday.
Police found the body of Salid Abdulacis Sabas overnight, with gunshot wounds to the head and lying near nine heavy-calibre cartridge cases, said a statement from Sinaloa state police.
“Our thoughts and sympathies are with the family and friends of the victim,” said a statement from Foreign Affairs. “Our officials in Mazatlan are in contact with local authorities and stand ready to provide consular assistance during this difficult time.”
Sinaloa state is the home of Mexico’s most wanted drug trafficker, Joaquin (El Chapo) Guzman, and one of the most violent states in Mexico.
