Attackers Shoot Up Political Party Office in Mexico

NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico – No one was hurt on Thursday when assailants fired shots at a regional office of Mexico’s conservative PAN party in Ciudad Victoria, capital of the northeastern state of Tamaulipas.

The PAN leadership in Tamaulipas condemned the attack and announced that it would pursue charges against the assailants.

“This attack was carried out to stir up fear and mistrust, to delay the advancement of democracy and to prevent the restoration of peace and rule of law that Tamaulipas residents are demanding,” the PAN said in a statement.

The shots damaged the building’s door, a handrail and a vehicle with a rear window sticker of Ricardo Anaya, the PAN candidate in the July 1 presidential election, state government spokesman Luis Alberto Rodriguez told EFE.

The attack took place a few hours before the state government announced an agreement with the US state of Texas to fight organized crime in the border region.

The attack against the PAN regional office also took place a few hours after the murder of Victor Manuel Saenz Martinez, the brother of the chief of staff of Tamaulipas Gov. Francisco Garcia Cabeza de Vaca.

Prior to that murder, the governor had announced his commitment to continue fighting organized crime in the state.
