    At least 21 killed in Mexican shootouts near U.S. border

    MEXICO CITY - At least 17 suspected cartel gunmen and four police were killed during shootouts over the weekend in a Mexican town near the U.S. border, days after U.S. President Donald Trump raised bilateral tensions by saying he would designate the gangs as terrorists.

    The government of the northern state of Coahuila said state police clashed at midday Saturday with a group of heavily armed gunmen riding in pickup trucks in the small town of Villa Union, about 40 miles southwest of the border city of Piedras Negras.

    Standing outside the Villa Union mayor's bullet-ridden offices, Coahuila Governor Miguel Angel Riquelme told reporters the state had acted "decisively" to tackle the cartel henchmen. Four police were killed and six were injured, he said.
