El Paso shooting 'act of terror' against Mexicans: foreign minister

The rampage, followed 13 hours later by another in Dayton, Ohio, has sparked outrage in Mexico, where officials are contemplating litigation alleging that the incident was terrorism against Mexicans living in the United States.

That could open the door to an eventual extradition request for the gunman.

El Paso is a bilingual city on the U.S.-Mexico border with a long history of attracting Mexicans to settle with their families a short distance from their hometowns, or simply to visit for weekend shopping sprees.
