Mexican attorney general: Six suspects confess to raping Spanish tourists

Six suspects arrested and accused of raping a group of Spanish tourists in a Mexican resort city have confessed, a top official said Wednesday.

Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam declared the case "resolved," although one suspect remains at large.

"There are already six arrests, confessed, totally confessed the full story of what happened, and we need only to arrest one more person identified in this process," he said. "The case is solved."

The allegations last week grabbed headlines across Mexico and around the globe. Authorities said hooded gunmen stormed into a beach bungalow in the Pacific port of Acapulco and attacked a group of Spanish tourists, raping six women and tying up a group of men with cell phone cables and bikini straps.

      Toss them a hat. Like this: *tosses hat*
      It worked for me earlier. And they've modified the filter again, but since I don't often post here, I cannot say when this originally occurred. But try tossing them a hat. I don't know what they could possibly do with them since they have their heads so far up their (ahem) but perhaps it is a sort of wishful thinking exercise. They want hats they cannot wear and seek to impose arcane rules upon innocent visitors to their site. I could speak more harshly but I want this to post and to maybe stay up for longer than a minute. Or it may not post due to length.
