Mexican authorities are confirming that two gunmen were killed during a Tuesday morning shootout with soldiers in Ciudad Mier, Tamaulipas.

Mexico's Ministry of National Defense (SEDENA) reported that the incident took place around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

SEDENA officials reported that soldiers were patrolling between Nueva Ciudad Guerrero and Ciudad Mier when they came under fire.

The gunbattle ended with two gunmen being killed.

Soldiers sezied 15 assault rifles, ammunition, three vehicles and military uniforms at the scene.

The names of the gunmen were not released but the case remains under investigation.

Residents of Ciudad Mier had to flee the town back in November following a series of intense gun battles between rival drug cartels.

Mexico's federal government responded by sending more troops to the area.

  3. To Anonymous 04/28@3:22 Mexico may have a better record that those that cover up for Iran/Contra, drug smuggling, Guillen incident (Google it to see the CIA sneaking it tons of cocaine and no one gets a slap in the wrist), fast and furious guns running, Alberto Gonzales staking judgeships, illegal renditions, etc. etc. In the US, if you have a godfather in a key position you can defecate in the constitution, wipe out your ass with the Star Spangled banner, spy on your own people and walk home to celebrate with your mistress while your wife serves hors d'oeuvre.
