MEXICO CITY (AP) - Authorities say a shootout between troops and
suspected drug traffickers in northern Mexico has killed two
soldiers and four gunmen.
The Defense Department says the clash began when gunmen opened
fire on a military patrol Sunday in the town of Doctor Arroyo, in
Nuevo Leon state.
A Defense statement says soldiers returned fire, killing three
assailants inside a home and another in a car.
Also Monday, police in Veracruz state said a federal court
official kidnapped last week was found dead.
State prosecutor Jose Franyutti said Nayeli Reyes' mutilated
body was discovered in the same residential area where she was
abducted as she drove to work.
