Eleven young people were brazenly kidnapped May 26 from an after-hours bar in Mexico City’s Zona Rosa, a normally calm district of offices, restaurants, drinking spots and dance clubs, according to their relatives. Here are the names The Associated Press has confirmed:
1. Eulogio Fonseca Arreola, 26, a street vendor who sells cell-phone accessories with his sister and family. “They went out to have fun. They are not criminals,” sister Isabel Fonseca said.
2. Jennifer Robles Gonzalez, 23, a single mother of a 6-year-old boy. Her family said she posted a message on Facebook after 8:30 a.m. Sunday saying she was dancing at the bar less than two hours before the kidnapping allegedly took place.
