Border patrol agent held at gunpoint by Mexican soldiers

Washington Times: Border Agent held at gunpoint by Mexican military
"A U.S. Border Patrol agent was held at gunpoint Sunday night by members of the Mexican military who had crossed the border into Arizona, but the soldiers returned to Mexico without incident when backup agents responded to assist."
Further down in the article: "Since 1996, there have been more than 200 confirmed incursions by the Mexican military into the United States."
"It was unclear what the soldiers were doing in the United States, but U.S. law enforcement authorities have long said that current and former Mexican military personnel have been hired to protect drug and migrant smugglers."
