Mexico federal police chief Galindo fired over Michoacan ranch killings

Mexico’s federal police chief, Enrique Galindo, has been sacked following allegations police killed at least 22 suspected members of a drugs cartel.

The killings are thought to have taken place last year on a ranch in the western state of Michoacan last year.

President Enrique Pena Nieto said he had dismissed Mr Galindo to allow for a transparent investigation.

Earlier this month Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission accused police of tampering with evidence.(BBC,2016)
