Another politician was assassinated yesterday in Guerrero. Rey Hernández García, who was member of a small left-leaning political party, was assassinated by gunmen using AK-47s as he was leaving his house in the municipality of Ometepec, Guerrero. This is the second assassination of a politician in the state of Guerrero in less in a year as the PRD party lost Armando Chavarría (who was the president of the Governmental Commission for the Guerrero Congress) in August of 2009, as he was sitting in his vehicle in front of his house.
Six police officers of the municipality of Benito Juárez were arrested due to the fact that they had escorted a convoy of gunmen who attacked a military patrol last friday. Further, the police officers, in 3 patrol cars, tried to block reinforcements trying to come to the aid of their comrades being attacked. The efforts of the police officers to assist the gangsters was of little avail, as the gunmen suffered 5 dead while the rest fled.
In Guadalajara, Jalisco 6 people were murdered, one of whom was a security official while Faustino Limón Moreno, a police commander from Mazatlán, Sinaloa was assassinated by gunmen in 2 vehicles in a drive-by shooting.
