Mexico gun exchange

Mexico City is sponsoring a programm offering cash, toys and computer equipment in exchange for guns in a rough neighbourhood where a 10-year-old boy was killed by a stray bullet as he sat inside a movie theatre.

The programm in the borough of Iztapalapa is dubbed For Your Family: Voluntary Disarmament.’

Borough president Jesus Valencia wrote in his Twitter account yesterday that residents had turned in 27 rifles and 65 pistols.

The borough has been plagued by violent crime and people firing guns into the air during concerts and celebrations.

Last month, 10-year-old Hendrik Cuacuas was hit in the head by a 9-mm bullet during the Disney film Wreck-It Ralph.

Prosecutors said the round was fired from outside the theatre, and spent bullets were found on the roof.
