An ambush of State Public Security Forces in Apaso el Alto (Guanajuato state) left at least five police officers killed and two others wounded on Friday, July 3. The officers were traveling on the Apaseo-Jerécuaro highway when their convoy was attacked by unknown gunmen near El Chamizal at around 08:40 (local time).
A heightened security presence is to be anticipated in the area in the near term.
Those in Guanajuato state are advised to monitor developments, avoid the affected area, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
Due to violence linked to the presence of various armed groups, some Western governments advise against travel to various parts of Mexico, notably the states of Guerrero, Michoacán, and Tamaulipas, as well as the northeastern border with the US.
