Woman in disguise murders 2 Israeli men in Chinese restaurant in Mexico City

A woman disguised in a blond wig shot to death two Israeli men at a Chinese restaurant in an upscale Mexico City shopping mall, in what appears to be an assassination carried out by an organized crime hit squad.

The alleged assailant was quickly arrested and claimed the double murder was a crime of passion – but authorities said on Thursday that both victims were well-known figures in the Israeli underworld.

The attack took place on Wednesday 24th July at the Artz Pedregal shopping mall. Authorities said the woman and a male accomplice sat down at a table near the victims at the Hunan restaurant and ordered drinks.

The woman then rose and approached the Israelis, shooting them at close range. One of the victims died at the scene, while the other man later succumbed to his injuries in the hospital.
