Hooded gunmen in military garb armed with submachine guns shot and killed 12 villagers and wounded three in the western state of Sinaloa, authorities there said Thursday.

About a dozen attackers stole a truck in the village of Limoncito de Ayala and went door to door Wednesday night, rounding up the victims and forcing them into the truck at gunpoint, witnesses said, according to the state police report.

All the victims were men, one of them only 12 years old, and all were farmers or bricklayers. The town is about 75 miles south of Culiacan, the capital of Sinaloa state and a major center of cocaine trafficking.
