"Mexico's government on Wednesday condemned a fatal shooting by a U.S. Border Patrol agent of a Mexican man who was allegedly trying to sneak across the border. The Foreign Relations Department urged U.S. authorities to conduct a thorough investigation of the death. Its statement questioned the U.S. officer's 'use of firearms to repel an attack with stones,' calling that 'a disproportionate use of force.'" (06/22/11)
