Like in a movie: gunmen using assault rifles, grenade launchers and bullets anti armored vehicles, attacked a convoy of mexican top security officials.

Mexican drug gangs have been known to target security officials

Gunmen in Mexico have attacked a convoy with the top security official in the western state of Michoacan, killing four people and wounding 10.

Officials say Public Safety Secretary Minerva Bautista was among the injured, but is now recovering.

Some 20 people with assault rifles and grenades carried out the attack.

The identity of the gunmen was not immediately known. Michoacan is home to one of Mexico’s most feared drug gangs, known as La Familia.

Ms Bautista’s convoy was ambushed as she was returning from the opening of a regional fair on Saturday, officials say.

The attackers used assault rifles, grenades, a grenade launcher and a sniper rifle capable to hit through bullet-resistant materials.READ MORE HERE.
