A Thursday Evening of Terror in Michoacan

Reports indicate that at least 38 people have been reported dead or missing in what took place yesterday evening in the state of Michoacan, Mexico.

According to official reports from the Federal Police, there were various incidents in which hit-men attacked Federal Police officers throughout the state. Four police officers were injured and 2 government helicopters were
forced to land because cartel gunmen started to shoot at them from different locations.

Several cartel gunmen stopped civilian vehicles as well as semi-trucks and buses and forced the drivers out of their vehicles. The gunmen took the civilian vehicles, lit them on fire and placed them in several major highways as an obstacle for the Federal Police to reach their destinations and hinder the investigations and persecutions. Traffic was slowed down all around the city for hours as civilians observed cars all over the city being lit on fire and abandoned on almost every highway.
