Gunmen rob busload of Mexican police officers

News24 - Saturday 20th May, 2017

Mexico City - Authorities in Mexico say gunmen have assaulted and robbed a bus full of federal police.

The National Security Commission reports that the bus was carrying 29 unarmed officers dressed in civilian clothes on Monday night to Mexico City, where they were to be on leave after 25 straight days on duty in the Pacific resort city of Acapulco.

The commission says the driver pulled over to check a mechanical problem near a toll booth in the state of Morelos. Armed men then boarded the bus, threatened him and the passengers and relieved them of their possessions.

A statement late on Thursday says the officers did not resist in order to avoid injuries or loss of life. Authorities are searching for the robbers.
