Mexican authorities say armed thieves dressed as zombies and other scary Halloween characters robbed a jewelry store in Mexico City.
The police say unarmed private security guards at the shopping center in Mexico City's central district arrived but the robbers threatened them with their weapons and fled.
Mexico's Day of the Dead activities on Nov. 2 have become intertwined with the U.S. celebration of Halloween, and it's common to see groups of costumed adults on the streets.
