Thirteen police officers killed in ambush near Mexico City

This brings the total amount of police officers killed in Mexico this year to 99.

Eight Mexico state police and five detectives for the Attorney General’s office in Mexico were killed on Thursday afternoon in the municipality of Coatepec Harinas.

It is thought that this was a revenge attack for a law enforcement operation which had previously occurred on Tuesday in Zacualpan, another town 40 km away from Coatepec Harinas, which in turn is some 120 km southwest of Mexico City.
