Across the border, gunfire erupted in Nuevo Progreso over the weekend and Mexican media reported that at least six people were killed and several others injured.
There was a lot less traffic than usual at the Progreso International bridge on Monday following Saturday's shooting. Media reports say around 200 people had to take cover in stores and homes when the shooting happened. Five convoys of Mexican troops were reported to be in a shoot out with cartel members.
