TIJUANA: An officer with Mexico's federal migrant protection unit, Grupo Beta, has died of gunshot wounds after an attack late Wednesday near the border, the Baja California Attorney General's Office reported yesterday.

Alejandro Rivera Meléndez, 34, and another officer were attacked shortly before midnight Wednesday in the upper part of Colonia Libertad, a Tijuana neighborhood that abuts the U.S. border at San Ysidro. Rivera was pronounced dead at a Tijuana hospital, according to the attorney general's statement.

Rivera was a member of Tijuana's municipal police department assigned to Grupo Beta, the statement said. The other officer was not identified, and his condition was not known.
