[JURIST] Several officers with the US Border Patrol are under investigation in connection with the deaths of three illegal immigrants attempting to cross the border near Eagle Pass, Texas. The officers are alleged to have thrown rocks at a group of six Mexicans attempting to cross the border, forcing them back into the Rio Grande river, where three drowned.
Mexican and American officials gave conflicting accounts of the events, which took place last Thursday. The Department of Homeland Security's inspector general office is investigating. CNN has more.
