Fourteen policemen were killed after being entrapped by ‘alleged groups of armed people’ in the municipality of Aguililla.
Mexico’s Secretariat of Security and Civilian Protection has said in a statement that it is deploying all its resources to find the perpetrators of the attack. “We are in communication with and making available to the state government all our human and technological resources to find the attackers and bring them to justice.”
Governor of Michoacan Silvano Aureoles Conejo said that ‘there will be no mercy’ for this aggression, where police officers and state troops were killed.
However, he declined to specify the death toll ‘until the State Attorney General’s Office issues the respective information”.
