Two grenades were found in front of a government building in Ciudad Victoria in Tamaulipas Saturday night, according to Mexican news accounts.
A news brief which appeared on the website of El Diario de Coahuila news daily reported that local police agents found two undetonated grenades left on the ground at around 2130 hrs Saturday near the Casa de Gobierno on calle 8th in northern Ciudad Victoria.
Tamaulipas' governor Egidio Torre Cantu and his wife were attending a soccer (futbol) game between Autonomous University of Tamaulipas (UAT) and Merida at a nearby stadium.
The report did not say what happened with regard to the governor, only that a mobilization had taken place in the area involving local police and Policia Federal units.
The find is the second in five days. Last Tuesday two hand grenades were detonated, presumably by armed suspects at the Palacio de Gobierno in Ciudad Victoria. That attack wounded three individuals.
Ciudad Victoris is the state capital of Tamaulipas state.
Meanwhile, social networks reported gunfire in Reynosa Sunday morning on Bulevar Colosio and later a convoy of armed suspects aboard 20 vehicles travelling in the city.
