In response to the confrontation that erupted between Juárez Mayor
Héctor Murguía and Mexican
federal police Wednesday afternoon, officials from México's
Department of Public Safety said the mayor's bodyguards looked like
"organized crime gunmen."
The argument between Murguía and federal police officers started
around 3 p.m. in Juárez after federal officers allegedly aimed their
rifles at the mayor's bodyguards on a city street.
According to a federal police official in México, federal officers
were patrolling Juárez streets when they came across a "convoy of
heavy armed individuals riding in three vehicles and speeding,
looking and behaving like organized crime gunmen," the official said
in a statement.
Those men turned out to be mayor's bodyguards.
After asking for back up, the federal officers stopped those civilians
on Libramiento and Mutualismo streets, Manuel Gómez Morín
neighborhood, the official said in a press release. Until then, the
riders of the second vehicle identified themselves verbally as local
police officers, but they didn't produce any badge or identification,
the official said.
Juárez Mayor Héctor Murguía got out from one of the vehicles and
complained about being pulled over by federal police, and said that
he was in charge of the city, the federal police press release said.
But Murguía alleges that his bodyguards produced their police badges
to federal officers. Still, he said, the federal officers pointed
their shotguns at the guards.
"Those (local police) badges were enough proof of my body guards'
identity as a police officers," Murguía said in a written statement
released Thursday morning.
"They (federal officers) were so arrogant," Juárez mayor added.
Murguía said he wants to file a complaint against those federal
An audio recording of the confrontation between Murguía the federal
police was released by the city.
"Let's be very clear, you don't rule the city and, besides, you can't
aim at my bodyguards," Murguía yelled in the recording.
The altercation occurred three months after federal police officers
allegedly shot and killed one of Murguía's bodyguards who were
guarding a perimeter while the mayor met with a church leader.
Two federal officers were jailed in connection with that shooting.

MEXICO CITY, May 5 .- The financing of the terrorist group Al Qaeda,

nothing to do with the fundamentals of Islam.

Some complaints are nothing new. Only five years earlier, in 2006,

Department, asserted in a hearing before the U.S. Congress, despite
