Several Mexican Drug Gang Members Killed In Gunfight

A gunfight between Mexican troops and the drug cartel left 11 men dead, all of whom are suspected of being members of the Zetas drug gang.

Mexico's defense department says the battle happened near the border with Texas.

The department says soldiers came under fire as they investigated a tip about the presence of armed men in a town south of Falcon Lake.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection says the gunfire prompted U.S. officials to reinforce security at two international crossings.
