2 die, 2 detained in San Fernando municipality

By Chris Covert

A total of 11 unidentified individuals were rescued from captivity by Mexican Security forces in Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas, according to Mexican news accounts.

An El Universal wire dispatch featured on the website of El Diario de Coahuila news daily said that a  Base de Operaciones Mixtas (BOM) detachment rolled up at a residence in Altavitsa colony Sunday night.   Two unidentified men were found in the house, strangled with plastic bags.  Two men were detained at the scene.

The victims told officials that they were waiting payment of ransom for their release from their families.

BOM detachments are a mix of local state and federal security units, including police and military.  Ciudad Victoria is the state capital of Tamaulipas.

Meanwhile in San Fernando municipality two unidentified armed suspects were killed by Mexican security forces Monday

According to an official news release posted on the website of Tamaulipas state government, a BOM road patrol encountered a convoy of three vehicles near a break near Rancho El Novillo on the Urracas-Reynosa road.  The news release said that the passengers riding in the convoy fired on the patrol, and return gunfire killed two.

Three of the vehicles in the convoy were abandoned, one Chevrolet Avalanche, one Chevrolet Silverado and one Nissan Murano.  Security forces also seized one rifle, one handgun, six weapons magazines and 70 rounds of ammunition.

The news release also claimed that two armed suspects were detained near an abandoned narcocamp at a farmhouse. A couple was detained at the scene, identified as Margarita Hernandez Gonzalo Alvarez and Manuel Martinez Aldama.  Two handguns were seized as well.
