At least five soldiers killed in Mexico ambush

At least five soldiers have died and ten have been wounded in an armed attack on a military convoy in Mexico’s northern state of Sinaloa.

The local prosecutor’s office says the attack took place in the early morning on the edge of the city of Culiacan in the home state of the Sinaloa cartel.

The cartel’s former leader, Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, was recaptured in January after going on the run.

Guzman is currently in prison in Ciudad Juarez, a northern city on the US border, where he is awaiting extradition to the United States.
