Police replaced at Mexico City airport after drug deaths
MEXICO CITY (AFP) - Mexico's federal police have replaced all 348 officers responsible for security at the capital's biggest airport after three agents were killed by corrupt colleagues smuggling drugs from Peru.
The Ministry of Public Security said the officers had been reassigned to different states.
One of the three police agents sought in the June 25 shooting at Mexico City's Benito Juarez International Airport has been captured. Two others remain at large.
From their hiding place, the fugitive officers told Proceso magazine that they had no links to drug trafficking, and accused their superiors of trying to coerce them into getting involved in organised crime.
