Soldiers kill four apparent kidnappers
MONTERREY | The Mexican army said Monday that soldiers killed four presumed kidnappers during a gunfight at a ranch in northeast Mexico.
A statement from the Defense Department said the gunmen opened fire on troops who were investigating a tip about suspicious activity Saturday night at the ranch in the town of China, near Texas.
It said that two adults and two children who apparently had been kidnapped were freed, and two suspects were detained.
Meanwhile, authorities said nine people were fatally shot Sunday in the resort city of Acapulco.
Guerrero state police said in a statement that the victims include a woman and her two children. Six others, including a retired navy captain, died in four separate attacks.
