Six Killed in Two Attacks in Eastern Mexico

VERACRUZ, Mexico Four policemen and two civilians were killed on Wednesday in attacks on a patrol car and a roadblock in the eastern Mexican state of Veracruz, officials said.

A group of hitmen traveling in a convoy attacked the patrol car and later the roadblock, the state authorities said.

A policeman was killed during the attack on the patrol car in the community of Motzorongo, and the other was injured and later transferred to a hospital, where he was reported to be in critical condition, the authorities added.

The same armed group subsequently arrived in the area of Laguna Chica and fired on police officers who were carrying out a roadblock on the highway to check motorcyclists and their documentation, killing three more officers and two civilians.

Members of the Mexican Army and Civil Force of Veracruz State arrived at the scene and launched an operation to search for the hitmen, although so far without success.

Veracruz has been afflicted by violence among the Jalisco Nueva Generacion, Los Zetas and El Golfo drug cartels.
