Kidnapped footballer rescued
Authorities say football player Alan Pulido, a forward with Olympiacos in the Greek league, has been rescued safe and sound after an hours-long kidnapping in the northeast border state of Tamaulipas.
The Tamaulipas security coordination group for Mexico's security forces said in a statement early Monday that the rescue occurred shortly before midnight. The statement said Pulido was being medically assessed.
The 25-year-old was kidnapped Saturday night outside his hometown of Ciudad Victoria as he left a party.
