México: Update--Gang-Rape, Armed Robbery of Spanish Tourists

COMMENT: As a follow-up to my numerous postings on the gang-rape of six Spanish tourists and the armed robbery of their entire group in Acapulco,we do know that six suspects were  arrested by prosecutors on February 11, but that their names were not released to the media nor were they formerly charged and arraigned.

In keeping with the manner in which México's criminal justice system, functions or or doesn't function, it appears that at first blush, prosecutors may not have sufficient evidence to formerly charge those that they've detained.

Although authorities had told the media that they would make arrests in the case by February 8, that appears to have been premature.
