Mexico: 14 Killed In Gunfight Near US Border

Video, images shared on social media show vehicles set ablaze, damaged municipality office.

More than a dozen people were killed in a gunfight between armed civilians and the Mexican security sources near the U.S. border in northern Mexico, according to local media on Sunday.
An hour-long gun battle took place in Villa Union, a town in Coahuila state, Miguel Angel Riquelme, the state governor told local media.
The mayor said 14 people were killed, including four police officers in the initial confrontation, and several municipal workers were missing.
The armed assailants are thought to be alleged members of the Cartel of the Northeast, a gang involved in drug trafficking.
Videos and images of the shootout shared on social media showed vehicles set ablaze and the facade of Villa Union's municipal office pierced with bullets.
Mexico has long been besieged by a deadly violence with drug cartels and criminal gangs fighting for control of territories.
The total number of victims of violent killings since President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador took office in December 2018 is approaching 20,000, according to the country's National Public Security System.
