12 Federal Agents Found Dead in Mexico
Twelve people tortured, slain and dumped along a mountain road in a drug-plagued Mexican state were off-duty federal agents, an official said Tuesday. It is one of boldest attacks on federal forces since President Felipe Calderon launched his national war on drugs.Mexico’s national security spokesman Monte Alejandro Rubido said the 11 men and one woman were investigating crime in President Felipe Calderon’s home state of Michoacan, which has been a center of his crackdown on organized crime.
Whey were they there off-duty? Where they getting in on some of the action?
