Mexico: 2 CIA agents wounded in shooting go to US

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican officials say two Americans wounded in a shooting attack by federal police on a U.S. Embassy vehicle are employees of the Central Intelligence Agency who have returned to the United States.

A Mexican federal official whose agency does not allow him to be quoted by name says the wounded Americans are CIA employees. U.S. officials won't confirm which agency the men worked for.

Mexican Attorney General Marisela Morales was asked Wednesday why the Americans were allowed to return to the U.S. even though an investigation is under way. Morales says they were allowed to go so they can be treated in the place they think is safe.

She says they can testify later in the case of 12 federal police officers who allegedly shot at their vehicle Friday.
