MEXICO CITY, April 8. /ITAR-TASS/. At least 17 people were killed in clashes between members of criminal gangs in Mexican city of Tampico (State of Tamaulipas). As reported by local authorities on Monday, shootouts between criminals continue for several days.
The delinquents set on fire cars and vending kiosks on the city’s streets although the police have taken measures to provide public safety. Administrations of two universities of Tampico have announced that the classes would be temporarily suspended. The shootouts also took place in the neighboring city of Madero, where victims were also reported.
Police representatives reported that the clashes began on Saturday, April 5, following the arrest of two leaders of the Gulf Cartel drug trafficking syndicate. This led to a split in the gang, and its members started armed clashes on the streets.
