Mexican police charged over US embassy staff shooting
Fourteen Mexican police officers have been charged with attempted murder over the shooting of two US government officials and a Mexican marine.

The three were wounded in August, when federal police officers opened fire on their diplomatic car near the town of Tres Marias, leaving their car riddled with 150 bullet holes.

At first, Mexican officials said it was a case of mistaken identity.

Prosecutors have since said they think it may have been a targeted attack.

The attorney general's office said the police officers involved in the shooting "attempted to take the life of two employees of the US embassy and a Mexican marine" travelling with them.
