Mexico. – The 25 soldiers who arrived until the clandestine taking in Tlahuelilpan, Hidalgo, could not move away to the hundreds of people who approached with containers to collect the fuel that sprung of the duct that moments before had been perforated.

This was reported by the head of the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena), Luis Cresencio Sandoval, who explained that the military personnel to be overwhelmed by the residents avoided confrontation.

“We do not want to face a crowd, or that they attack military personnel, that’s why we avoid confrontation,” said Luis  Cresencio  Sandoval , in a press conference this morning at the National Palace.

According to the general, the clandestine shot reached a height of 5 and 6 meters, so the soldiers who walk every 20 kilometers watching the pipelines, asked the population to move away, but they were not heard.
