8 people, including one soldier, died in clashes between the military and suspected drug cartel members in Mexico's eastern state of Veracruz
One civilian also died in the violence, which appears to be the latest in the ongoing war in Mexico between the state and powerful drug cartels. Five people were injured in the clashes. More than 28,000 people have died in drug-related violence since December 2006.
