Monday, October 24, 2016


One person was killed and several others injured in a clash between members of the Yaqui indigenous group divided over construction of a gas pipeline in northwest Mexico, officials said.

Sonora state public security chief Adolfo Garcia Morales said in a news conference late Friday that the clash erupted during a protest that began around 9 a.m. outside a school in a community called Loma de Bacum. About 400 people between the two sides had gathered by noon.
