Nueva Ciudad Guerrero, Mexico: Six gunmen killed

“Six gunmen were killed in a clash with army troops in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas, Mexico’s defense department said Friday.

Helicopter-borne troops under the command of the 7th Military Zone were conducting “aerial reconnaissance” Thursday when they detected a vehicle hidden in the vegetation and stopped to investigate, the defense department said in a statement.

On landing to inspect the vehicle, the soldiers “were attacked with gunfire by suspected organized crime elements who sheltered in a structure,” the statement continued.”
