Tough day for Mexican police

- Agents of the organized crime division of the Mexican federal department of justice (SIEDO) arrested 12 Guerrero state police investigators for apparent connections with narco criminals. The state agents were summoned to an anti-narcotics office to presumably carry out an operation. On arrival, they were disarmed and arrested on federal warrants by SIEDO agents assisted by military units.

- State police in La Union, Guerrero, responding to a report of the discovery of a body, were ambushed by a group of hit men. The attack wounded five of the officers and killed another.

- A federal police commander and an agent were gunned down in Mexicali, Baja California, when they arrived at a residence suspected of narco activity. The attack also wounded another federal agent accompanying them.

- In another incident, a municipal police captain in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, was assassinated while driving his personal car.

- The mutilated body of a presumed policeman was discovered in the town of Soledad de Doblado, Veracruz, an area where federal forces killed the leader of a group of Los Zetas last Tuesday. The body, with clothing that appeared to be a police uniform, had a message on the chest signed by Los Zetas, the armed branch of the Gulf drug cartel.

- While eight people were murdered in Sinaloa state during the past day, another victim of a shooting that occurred August 29 died in the hospital from the injuries she suffered in an attack that targeted and killed her husband, a municipal police agent.

- And in Tijuana, Baja California, authorities have learned that organized crime planned to assassinate the Secretary of Public Security because of the actions he has taken against them. Although he has not received death threats, federal authorities have information that an attack was planned. This has put the authorities on alert. The mayor said, in effect, that the top police official is threatened because he is actually doing his job. Those who are not performing their duties have nothing to fear.
