Drug Cartel in Mexico Sets IEDs That Killed Six Individuals
A devastating incident unfolded in western Mexico as a drug cartel orchestrated a lethal ambush, resulting in the deaths of four police officers and two civilians. Officials revealed that a drug cartel had planted bombs, representing a troubling development where Mexican criminals have successfully employed improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to target law enforcement for the first time.
According to The Guardian, the chief prosecutor of Jalisco state, Luis Méndez, revealed the devastating impact of the explosions that occurred in the town of Tlajomulco. The blasts set by a drug cartel were so powerful that they caused craters on the road, obliterated a minimum of four vehicles, and injured 14 individuals.
During the search operation, a police convoy and the accompanying search party were tragically targeted at the location of the ambush set by a drug cartel. Seven explosive devices that had been placed on the road were triggered simultaneously, inflicting widespread devastation.
They also discovered the eighth bomb but it did not explode.
The Governor of Jalisco, Enrique Alfaro, attributed the tragic deaths to an undisclosed drug cartel, assuming responsibility for the violent incident, ABC News reported.
In light of the escalating danger faced by civilians, Alfaro announced a temporary suspension of police escorts for volunteer search operations, prioritizing the safety of those involved.
