14 police officers killed in Mexico gun ambush

Fourteen police officers have been killed and three injured in a shooting in western Mexico.

The police were carrying out a court order in El Aguaje, Michoacán state, when their convoy was ambushed.

A powerful criminal group, the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel, is believed to have carried out the attack.

Authorities said all resources would be put into finding those responsible. The region is a hotspot for violence linked to turf wars between drug cartels.
