PACHUCA, Mexico — Mexican authorities said a car bomb killed a police commander and wounded three officers in the central state of Hidalgo. State Public Safety Secretary Damian Canales Mena said the officers were checking out a tip that a body was in the trunk when the vehicle exploded.

Canales Mena said investigators suspect the Zetas drug cartel is behind Saturday's attack in the town of Tula. He commented that it could be revenge for the recent killings of several cartel members by police.

Hidalgo is the home state of alleged Zetas leader Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano and a central transit point for drugs.
