MEXICO CITY - President Felipe Calderon promised on Tuesday to get to the bottom of how two US officials were shot at by federal police officers, allegedly in plain clothes, while heading to a Mexican marine base.
Speaking alongside the US ambassador in Mexico, Calderon said the shooting incident should not hinder bilateral efforts to fight Mexico's violent drug cartels.
"We can't allow these things to happen, whether it is because of negligence, lack of training, lack of trust or complicity," Calderon said.
"Fighting organized crime and drug trafficking is a job that the Mexican government cannot do alone. It is a problem we must fight together."
