4 government bodyguards killed in Mexico
VERACRUZ, Mexico Assailants killed four bodyguards protecting a state governor's children in the Gulf coast city of Veracruz, amid a wave of violence across Mexico that has hit soldiers and police.
Army troops were sent today to Veracruz after the slaying of the men.
Veracruz prosecutors said it appears the gunmen mistook the guards' vehicle for that of a rival gang.
Also today, the bodies of four men who were tortured and shot in the head were found in the city of Nuevo Laredo, across the U-S border from Laredo, Texas. That's what state police commander Wenceslao Gaznarez says. A sign was found nearby bearing a threat to the Sinaloa drug cartel from its rival, the Gulf cartel.
