    Workers from the coroner's office, military personnel and family members stand at a tent near a casino which was attacked earlier in Monterrey August 25, 2011. Masked gunmen killed at least 53 people at the casino in northern Mexico on Thursday, leaving it ablaze with patrons trapped inside in one of the worst attacks in a major Mexican city in years. Analysts and officials said the brazen assault had all the hallmarks of drug cartels that have plunged Monterrey and other parts of Mexico into a spiral of violence.
