Mexico: deadly attacks on police in Sinaloa

Nine are dead—five agents of the Federal Preventative Police, two municipal police, and two civilians—following three shoot-outs May 2 and 3 in the Mexican city of Culiacán, Sinaloa. Four police agents were also wounded. The confrontations began when police patrols came under attack with AK-47 fire. Two others were killed elsewhere around the city over the weekend. One man was killed with a bullet to the head, while police found an unidentified corpse wrapped in plastic. (La Jornada, Cronica de Hoy, May 4)
