14 dead in attack on police in Mexico
MEXICO CITY (AFP) — Gunmen killed 14 police Monday in an ambush in the state of Michoacan in western Mexico, authorities said, condemning the latest violence in the restive region, a hotspot for criminal groups and vigilantes.
Local media reports said the state police were executing a warrant on the city outskirts when gunmen in armored four-by-four trucks opened fire.
They torched at least two patrol cars in the ensuing chaos and left signs with threatening messages directed at the security forces at the scene.
