At least 22 killed in gunfight southwest of Mexico City

(Reuters) - At least 22 suspected gang members were killed southwest of Mexico City early on Monday, the government said, in one of the bloodiest shootouts with security forces since President Enrique Pena Nieto took power.
An Interior Ministry spokesman said the gunfight took place in Tlatlaya on the southern fringes of the State of Mexico, an area that has been plagued by gang violence in the two neighboring states of Guerrero and Michoacan.
A spokesman for federal prosecutors said all the dead were believed to be gang members.
According to Mexican media reports, the shooting started after soldiers came under fire from the suspected gang members
