Gun battle between Mexican Army and Los Zetas

Mexican Army units, responding to a report of armed men in Santiago, Nuevo Leon, were met with gunfire which wounded two soldiers.  In the ensuing 40-minute  gun battle five members of the criminal gang Los Zetas were killed and one was wounded.  A civilian caught in the crossfire was also killed.  In the aftermath of the pitched battle in which most of the vehicles received damage, troops seized firearms, marihuana, “instruments of torture” and radio equipment.  Troops also rescued a person who had been kidnapped a month ago and was being held for 1 million pesos ransom.  [Photo of a part of the arms seizure relates.]
