Slain UTEP Students Not Unlike Others

A university is mourning the loss of two of its students who were killed in Ciudad Juarez.  Authorities say the UTEP students were gunned down in a hail of more than 30 bullets while driving a car with Texas plates.  Both students were U.S. citizens but lived in Ciudad Juarez with their families just a few miles from campus.

They, along with 1,400 UTEP students, make the commute across the border just to get an education.

"I can't quit coming to school.  I have to do it every day so I just leave it all in the hands of God," said one student.

UTEP and other Texas universities now restrict official travel to Mexico, but students who live there don't have a choice.  This brings the deaths of Americans in Mexico to six over the over the last two weeks.
