Mexico police face trial in US vehicle shooting
MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexican prosecutors and defence lawyers say that seven of the 14 federal police officers charged in a shooting attack on a United States Embassy vehicle in August have been ordered to stand trial.
The 14 were detained soon after the Aug. 24 ambush left the American car riddled with bullets. They are charged with attempted homicide and damage to property.
The two CIA agents in the car suffered non-life-threatening injuries and a Mexican navy captain with them was unharmed in the attack south of Mexico City.
A US federal official confirmed the trial ruling on Friday as did lawyer Mr Enrique Mondragon, who represents two of the officers.
