A reported 11 members of the Los Zetas cartel were killed and 2 captured in a gun battle which took place on the afternoon of Wednesday after an anonymous caller gave a tip about armed men downtown off Boulevard Miguel Hidalgo.
Upon arriving in the area, the soldiers came under fire by heavy caliber weapons. When the battle ended the outcome, 2 gunmen, Carlos Ambrosio Gonzalez-Mosina and Oscar Salomon Rangel where injured and detained, while 11 others where killed, Sedena officials report.
The gun battle took place on the Mexican side of Falcon Dam in Nueva Ciudad Guerrero located just above Mier. Another recent incident which involved several soldiers killed and others captured took place in Mier just recently, could this be a continued retaliation by the soldiers?
The Zetas began attacking Cd. Mier again just hours after the Marines in Matamoros killed Tony Tormenta and Tyson. Citizens all over are left guessing in the dark, "How is Mexico fighting this war?" While some places in Mexico get overcrowded with the Mexican military, other places are neglected and when pictures and stories spill out, the government just denies it and assures people that everything is OK and the war against drugs is being won.
After the gun battle in Nueva Ciudad Guerrero, Mexican military reported seizing :
25.25 lbs of Marijuana
9 assault Riffles
1 grenade launcher
22 ammo clips
