Drug gang behind ICE hit: Mayor

Mexican drug gang hitmen were behind the shooting of two U.S. immigration and customs agents, the governor of the state where the men were attacked said yesterday.

SAN LUIS POTOSI, Mexico – Mexican drug gang hitmen were behind the shooting of two U.S. immigration and customs agents, the governor of the state where the men were attacked said yesterday.

One Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent was killed and a second was wounded in the suspected ambush on Tuesday, which comes against a backdrop of spiraling violence between Mexican security forces and drug cartels.

United States officials have warned the cartels against any attempt to bring their brutal tactics across the border, and if a gang responsible for the attack on the agents is identified, U.S. intelligence work is likely to focus on trying to catch its leaders.
