MEXICO CITY - Mexico's federal police used excessive force that resulted in five deaths, and murdered one other person, in an incident earlier this year in the troubled state of Michoacan, Mexico's national human rights commission said on Wednesday.

The National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) said its investigations into the January incident, in which federal forces clashed with members of a vigilante group that had taken control of the town of Apatzingan in Michoacan, found that the people were killed after federal police used excessive force.

"Forensic results carried out by personnel of this National Commission found evidence of excessive force which led to the loss of life of five people, as well as the extrajudicial execution of one person, by members of the federal police," the CNDH said in its report of the findings.
