His 9-year-old sister, McKenzie, was grazed in the arm. She walked for four hours in the dark before finally finding rescuers.

It is reported that eight children survived Monday’s attack in northern Mexico in which three women and six children were killed.

Five of the children have bullet wounds, US media report.
