MEXICO CITY, Dec 1: A shootout in a Mexican town near the US border between suspected drug traffickers and police left at least 14 dead, including four officers, officials said on Saturday.
The confrontation broke out shortly before noon in Villa Union in the northern state of Coahuila when officers detected several vehicles and heavily armed passengers touring the small community, which is roughly 60 kilometres (40 miles) from the US border.
Four of those killed were police, seven were suspected criminals and another three unidentified bodies were found nearby on a rural road, Coahuila governor Miguel Angel Riquelme told reporters.
Six officers were also wounded but their injuries were not serious and they had already been discharged from hospital, Riquelme said.    -AFP
