Seven killed in aid robbery
    2017-July-27  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

SEVEN people were killed after assailants attacked a truck delivering anti-poverty aid payments on a rural road in southern Mexico.

The ambush-style attack in the state of Guerrero killed five municipal police officers and two federal bank employees.

A state security representative said in a statement the unidentified attackers made off with equivalent of US$55,000. The attack took place as the truck crossed a mountain pass.

After killing the seven people and stealing the money, the gang fled and no information is known about their current whereabouts, according to the statement.

One bank employee was injured but still managed to report the ambush to authorities Tuesday morning. The army, state police and the state prosecutor’s office were all investigating. No arrests have been made.

The federal anti-poverty program known as Prospera distributes cash payments of as much as US$100 to families with young children, and US$165 to those with older children.

Prospera is a program from the Ministry of Social Development, which helps over 6 million families living in poverty with financial aid and other social help.(SD-Xinhua)
