MEXICO CITY (AP) — U.S. officials say an alleged 14-year-old drug gang killer in Mexico is a U.S. citizen.

U.S. Embassy spokesman Alexander Featherstone says U.S. authorities have also confirmed his 19-year-old sister is an American citizen. He says embassy officials have visited both in prison.

He said Thursday the embassy "will continue to provide consular services to the boy and his sister" but provided no other details.

The boy and his sister were arrested last week as they tried to board a plane to Tijuana in an airport near Cuernavaca south of Mexico City. A 23-year-old sister who drove them to the airport was also detained.

The siblings' mother was arrested in San Diego Wednesday and charged with entering the U.S. illegally.
