At least 11 people have been killed in clashes between villagers and terrorists in Mexico. The incident took place on Friday in Texcaltitlan, a small agricultural town in central Mexico.
This has been reported in a report by Qatar-based media Al-Jazeera.
Mexico’s state security ministry said in a statement on Friday that the dead included eight suspected criminals and three ordinary villagers.
Police in the state say the suspected gang involved in the clash is yet to be identified. But they are working with the National Guard and other authorities to get the details.
Meanwhile, according to local media reports, gunmen belonging to a drug-trafficking group called Familia Michoacana went to the village to demand money from local farmers. The group was blamed for the massacre of 20 people in the neighboring state of Guerrero last year.
Familia Michoacana has been active in this region of Mexico for several years. This group is well known for extorting money from traders through threats.
