mexico - Certainly ten people have come to terms with fighting between the Mexican army and alleged oil charges. That happened during a major military operation to reduce oil theft.
The victims fell on Wednesday in the state of Puebla. Soldiers came to lie at the Palmarito village when they took pole height after a report stating that fuel was stolen from a pipeline.
According to the army, the shooters used women and children as a living shield. The soldiers did not return. A few hours another group of soldiers were shot in the same place by armed men.
Certainly four soldiers and six alleged oil victims were killed. According to the armed forces, twelve people were arrested. Local residents later protested against the army's action that they held responsibility for the violence.
The authorities are strongly committed to reducing oil theft in the country. State oil company Pemex says a record number of 27,000 barrels of fuel per day to be lost through theft.
