Mexican Troops in Shootout, 11 Die

Wednesday, 26 Sep 2012 03:45 PM

Mexican authorities say troops have clashed with an armed group near a church in southern Mexico, leaving 11 people dead, including a soldier and one woman.

The Guerrero state prosecutor's office says troops confronted the group in the town of Tepecoacuilco de Trujano, about 120 miles (200 kilometers) south of Mexico City. It says state police found 10 bodies in and around a chapel, in addition to the soldier who died in Wednesday's shootout.

The agency says two civilians were wounded, and says they apparently had been kidnapped by the group.

It reports that weapons, vehicles and bags of marijuana were also confiscated.
