A heavy confrontation between armed subjects and elements of the Mexican Army left at least 12 alleged criminals dead. The confrontation took place while military personnel were patrolling the Los Fresnos neighborhood and the road to the airport in the early hours of today, Friday, in the city of Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas.

Mexican soldiers patrolling in the border city of Nuevo Laredo came under fire from drug cartel gunmen Friday, then killed 12 of their attackers in a gunbattle, the military said.

The Defense Department said three army patrol trucks were hit by gunfire, but no troops were hurt. The gunmen were believed to belong to the Cartel of the Northeast, a split-off of the old Zetas cartel.

2 of the trucks used by the cartel gunmen were reported stolen from the United States.
