Eleven shot dead in Cape Verde including two Spanish citizens

PRAIA – Eleven people were shot dead in Cape Verde on Wednesday including eight soldiers, a local civilian and two Spanish citizens, state TV and police sources said. There were no immediate details of the killings but authorities were due to hold a press conference on Wednesday. Cape Verde’s battle against gangs smuggling Latin American cocaine to Europe has led to a series of reprisal shootings, though it was not known whether the killings were drug-related.
