Gunmen Kill Soldier in Northwest Mexico

CULIACAN, Mexico – A soldier was killed and two others wounded in an ambush staged by gunmen in Guasave, a city in the northwestern Mexican state of Sinaloa, officials said.

Gunmen followed an army patrol on a road that links the cities of Guasave and Salvador Alvarado, located in an area where illegal drug labs have been dismantled, Sinaloa Attorney General’s Office spokesmen told Efe.

The identities of the soldiers killed and wounded in the ambush have not been released.

State police and soldiers cordoned off the crime scene so investigators could gather evidence, the AG’s office said.

Sinaloa is home to the powerful drug cartel that bears the state’s name.

The Sinaloa cartel, according to intelligence agencies, is a transnational business empire that operates in the United States, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia.

Joaquin “El Chapo” (Shorty) Guzman, the cartel’s leader, was captured on Feb. 22 by marines in the resort city of Mazatlan.

The 57-year-old Guzman, the world’s most notorious and powerful drug lord, was captured without any shots being fired.
