This border city stood eerily quiet Saturday as gunmen killed at least 14 people in 24 hours, making good on a promise to turn this weekend into a bloodbath.

Already, despite the presence of more than 2,500 federal troops and agents, more than 300 people have been killed in Juárez this year. Moreover, at least one police chief, from nearby Palomas, Chihuahua, and two Juárez policemen are seeking asylum in the U.S.

Who’s behind the e-mail, no one seems to know, though speculation centered on the Juárez cartel, whose top gunmen are known as La Linea. One U.S. intelligence official said La Linea is retaliating against former allies who changed their allegiance and are now working with leaders of the Sinaloa drug cartel.

The Juárez cartel also appears to have formed alliances with the Zetas, the paramilitary group that operates along the Texas-Tamaulipas border. The two groups have also joined with Arturo Beltran Leyva, a former top member of the Sinaloa cartel, according to U.S. intelligence.
