Fourteen kil-led in gun battle between Mexican authorities and drugs gang

At least 14 people have been shot de-ad in a gun battle between Mexican security forces and members of a suspected drug cartel near the Texas border.

Four police officers were kil-led and six injured in the clash which also claimed the lives of 10 members of the cartel.

Several other people were reported missing, including staff from the mayor’s office.

The hour-long firefight erupted when an armed group invaded the town of Villa Union in a convoy of pick-up trucks, storming local government offices.

Coahuila state Governor Miguel Angel Riquelme said the authorities had acted “decisively” in repelling the gunmen who were members of the Cartel of the Northeast.

Rapid gunfire could be heard on graphic video footage of the clash which was posted on social media.
