Mexican official: About 40 dead in cartel shootout

(Associated Press) About 40 people were killed in large-scale firefight Friday between law enforcement and criminal suspects in western Mexico, a Mexican official said.

Almost all the dead were suspected criminals, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

The gunbattle happened in an area between Michoacan and Jalisco states that is known as a stronghold of the Jalisco New Generation drug cartel, which has mounted several large-scale attacks on federal and state forces in recent weeks. A federal police official said the country’s top security officials were en route to assess what happened.

The suspect, Michael C. Ford, was arrested at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on May 17 as he was flying back to London with his wife and son. The criminal complaint against him was unsealed the following day.

On Thursday, a federal judge in Atlanta set Ford’s bond at ,000, despite the impassioned pleas by prosecutors for no bond at all, and ordered him to remain under house arrest in his own home in nearby Dunwoody, Georgia.
