MEXICO CITY, Jul. 16, 2010 (Xinhua News Agency) -- Gangesters launched a car bombing attack in northern Mexico Thursday night, killing three police officers and a doctor, authorities said on Friday.

C-4 explosives and remains of a mobile telephone were found on the scene in Ciudad Juarez, the largest city in northern state Chihuahua, said Eduardo Zarate, head of the fifth military zone that covers the city.

Arturo Chavez Chavez, the nation's attorney general, told reporters that the bombing was a retaliation to the arrest of Jesus Armando Acosta Guerrero, a member of the La Linea gang nicknamed "35", who was arrested a few hours before the attack.

"For the moment, we are unable to confirm if it was just a vehicle carrying explosives or there is a close link to the arrested man," Chavez said, adding that he considered the attack "cowardly and devious."

He also said authorities are aware of the vulnerability of some police stations to such aggression.

Authorities need a minimum level of security, Chavez said, adding that he plans to equip police facilities with perimeter barriers and security guards.
