"A clash between police and suspected cartel gunmen killed six officers in Mexico's southeast, just hours before a shootout between soldiers and gunmen in Acapulco on Monday left three people dead and ended in a fire that destroyed a supermarket, movie complex and stores in a shopping center. The worst bloodshed was in the town of El Higo in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz — near the violence-wracked state of Tamaulipas — where municipal police officers on a routine patrol late Sunday ran into at least 20 gunmen on a dirt road and a firefight erupted."
