    Ciudad Juárez has become one of the world's deadliest cities amid a turf war between the Sinaloa and Juárez drug cartels, and now four U.S. citizens are the newest victims.

    The four Americans were shot to death in separate attacks in the border city, where over 2,000 people have been killed this year, Mexican authorities said Monday.

    Chihuahua state prosecutors' spokesman Arturo Sandoval said Edgar Lopez, 35, of El Paso, Texas, was killed Sunday along with two Mexican men when gunmen opened fire on a group standing outside a house.

    On Saturday, a 26-year-old U.S. woman and an American boy were slain shortly after crossing an international bridge from El Paso. Giovanna Herrera and Luis Araiza, 15, were shot to death along with a Mexican man traveling with them just after 11 a.m., Sandoval said.

    Sandoval said authorities also identified a 24-year-old woman killed Friday inside a tortilla shop as Lorena Izaguirre, a U.S. citizen and El Paso resident. A Mexican man was also found dead in the store.

    That's because Americans in the eyes of the world DON'T matter - and maybe in the eyes of the USA government also.
