A police vehicle was ambushed in Mexico, killing at least 13 top officials. According to the report of the news agency Xinhua, the incident occurred in the city of Cotepec Hariñas in the state of Mexico on Thursday afternoon. According to Rodrigo Martinez-Salis, the state’s security secretary, members of the local police and the prosecutor’s office were patrolling, during which their car was attacked.
The officer confirmed that eight police officers and five prosecutors were killed in the attack. He said, “This attack has been done to avenge the Mexican government.” We will respond with full force to uphold the law. ”This is the largest such attack ever since October 2019 in Mexico’s Mishocone state.
Earlier in October 2019, 14 police officers lost their lives in an attack on drug traffickers in Mishoken State. Extensive operations have been launched in Mexico City’s gang-ravaged countryside in search of attackers after Thursday’s attack. The area is surrounded on three sides by the state of Mexico.
