Security forces shot dead seven more suspected cartel gunmen after a weekend attack on the northern Mexican town of Villa Union, authorities said Sunday, bringing the death toll to 21.
The attack in Villa Union happened only a few days after U.S. President Donald Trump fanned bilateral tensions by saying he would designate cartels as terrorists.
