At least two Mexican policemen have been killed and another injured in a shootout at the airport in the capital, Mexico City, amid growing violence in the country. Jorge Gomez, a spokesman for the airport, said the incident happened in the Terminal 2 on Monday. "Arrivals and departures have not been affected and everything else is operating normally in the terminal," he said. The cause of the shootout is under investigation. Security officials have cordoned off the area of the incident. Mexico’s capital city has seen relatively low murder rates compared to the rest of the country, where drug violence has killed around 55,000 people in the past five and a half years. However, attacks have been creeping into Mexico City and its surrounding neighborhoods. AGB/JR/SS/AZ
