Six Mexican police officers kidnapped in Nuevo Leon

“Six police officers were kidnapped Friday in this northern Mexican metropolis, Nuevo Leon state authorities said.

Witnesses said several SUV-loads of men armed with assault rifles intercepted two state police vehicles at an intersection in Monterrey and forced the officers to surrender, said sources with the Nuevo Leon Security Council.

Bullet holes were found in the abandoned police vehicles.

The mass abduction came a few hours after two gunmen were killed and two others arrested in a clash with state police in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon’s capital, and followed the army’s arrest here Thursday of six traffic cops on suspicion of ties to organized crime.”
