Acapulco: Tourists Tied up with Bikinis and Gang Raped by Masked Robbers

A view of the famous resort town of Acapulco, Mexico, were seven tourists have been raped by an armed gang (WikiCommons)

A group of tourists have been raped by a masked gang who raided their holiday villa in the Mexican resort of Acapulco.

Local authorities said the armed men burst into the bungalow rented by 13 Spanish tourists, six women and seven men, and a Mexican woman, in Playa Bonfil, facing the Pacific Ocean, near the famous Punta Diamante area, local authorities said.

The attackers gagged and tied up the men with phone cables and then raped the women, who they had bound up with their own bikinis.

Police received an emergency call at 7am, five hours after the tourists’ ordeal had started.

A number of credit cards and tablets and 7.800 pesos (£390) were also stolen from the tourists, who are reportedly all under 30 years of age.

Acapulco’s state of Guerrero is experiencing a bloody turf war between drugs gangs between  the Michoacan Family and the Knights Templar.

    Well, they were probably White Hispanics, so they deserved what they got.

    They go because guns are outlawed in Mexico. Therefore, it is perhaps the safest country to visit. Dontcha know?

    OK, I just saw that “Knights Templar” bit. Either this is Onion or these drug gangs are way over-the-top picaresque.

    We can’t blame the Mexicans. After 300 years of living in the shadow of the Great Satan to the North and not being allowed to come and go across the border as they please, sucking the lifeblood out of the Gringos, they have no choice but to rape and rob Spaniards who, foolishly, tourist there.

    This is, actually, that DAMNED GEORGE BUSH’S fault!

    Because people are idiots?

    Some people still “vacation” in the ME. Go figure.
    A NYC woman, mother of two, who recently “vacationed” in Istanbul by herself, was found dead.

    From the looks of it, one of the gangs was armed by the Vatican.

    Why? Because the media doesn’t report on the violence for fear of being sued by the government of Mexico which relies on tourism.
