Six suspects who were arrested on the charges of raping a group of Spanish tourists in a Mexican resort city, have confessed to their crimes, according to a senior Mexican official.

According to authorities, hooded gunmen forcibly entered a beach bungalow in the Pacific port of Acapulco and attacked a group of Spanish tourists, raping six women and tying up a group of men, CNN reports.

Confirming the fact, Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam said that the case has been almost resolved, with only one suspect remaining, who is still absconding.

Karam said that investigators have yet not determined whether the arrested suspects, one of whom is a minor, are a part of a gang and added that it is also undecided whether the accused had met the victims before the attack took place.

This high-profile case was the latest among the significant security problems in a state that has seen a surge in violence even as homicide numbers in other hot spots across Mexico have started to dip. (ANI)
