    CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico - A U.S. Consulate official and her husband were gunned down here within sight of the border with their baby in the back seat, officials said Sunday.

    President Obama expressed outrage over the killings, and Mexican President Felipe Calderón promised a swift investigation.

    Several U.S. citizens have been killed in Mexico's drug war, most of them people with family ties to Mexico. However, it's rare for American government employees to be targeted.

    ‘Safe corridors’ in Ciudad Juarez have collapsed: residents
    Tue, Mar 15, 2011 - A highly touted project to bring a little peace back to the violence-wracked border city of Ciudad Juarez with “safe corridors” along main streets has largely collapsed with a change in policing, residents and officials said.
