In Mexico, an American couple and a third person were killed over the weekend just across the U.S. border in Ciudad Juarez, a city consumed by drug violence.

The State Department has authorized the families of its diplomatic personnel across northern Mexico to leave the country.
But, as Tom Ackerman of Al Jazeera English reports, the killings were just a few of dozens in Mexico this weekend.
