Mexican gunmen burn magazines printing plant

A gang of armed men has raided and set fire to a printing plant in northern Mexico used to print and distribute magazines.

It is the second attack in less than a week against media facilities in the northern Mexico border state of Nuevo Leon.

An official in the Nuevo Leon state prosecutors' office who was not authorized to speak on the record says the attack targeted a plant run by the DIPSA company in the city of Monterrey. It handles work for the Proceso news magazine as well as society and gossip publications.

The official said no one was injured in the Tuesday attack, but five employees had their cell phones and wallets taken.

On Sunday attackers set fire to an office of the El Norte newspaper in Monterrey.
