A total of six unidentified individuals were killed in separate encounters in Zacatecas state Thursday and Friday, according to official Mexican government and private news sources.



A Mexican Army unit with the 11th Military Zone came under small arms fire while on patrol in Garcia de la Cadena municipality near the village of Las Higueras Friday.  Soldiers in the patrol unit observed a convoy with several vehicles, and exchanged gunfire with the convoy's occupants.

Mexican Army counterfire killed four armed suspects.  Following the firefight, soldiers seized two AK-47 rifles, one AR-15 rifle, one FAL 7.62mm NATO rifle, 39 weapons magazines, an undisclosed quantity of ammunition and a BMW SUV.

In a separate incident, reported in a web report posted on the website of El Sol de Zacatecas news daily, two unidentified individuals were killed and another female victim was wounded in an armed attack on a taxi in the village of Encino Mocho in Jerez municipality Thursday evening. 

A total of five unidentified individuals were killed in an armed encounter with a Mexican Army unit in the same village at about the same time.  According to the latest news report, an army unit was tasked with providing protection for the female victim in the taxi attack as she received medical attention.
