UPDATE 1-Mexico convulsed by second mass shooting in two daysA gunfight between security forces and armed civilians in Mexico’s southwestern state of Guerrero killed 15 people on Tuesday, authorities said, the second mass killing to shake the country in as many days. Guerrero state public security spokesman Roberto Alvarez said 14 civilians and one soldier died in the shootout in the municipality of Tepochica, near Iguala, a city notorious for the 2014 disappearances of 43 student teachers. A photograph of the aftermath seen by Reuters showed two slain civilians, one of them hanging limply off the side of a battered pick-up truck that had been riddled with bullets as security forces patrolled the area.
