14 Die in shootout in Mexico

“Two soldiers and 12 gunmen were killed during a nearly six-hour-long battle in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz, Mexican authorities said Friday.

The clashes occurred in Xalapa, the state capital, the commander of the 6th Military Region, Carlos Rene Aguilar Paez, told a press conference.

Five assault rifles, three handguns, several ammunition clips and three stolen vehicles found at a mob safe house were confiscated in the operation, which Aguilar said began when anonymous callers alerted authorities to gunfire in Xalapa’s Higueras and Casa Blanca neighborhoods.”
