    The federal police force in Mexico has sacked almost 10% of its officers in an effort to combat corruption.

    The 3,200 fired officers had either failed to do their job properly or had been linked to corruption or organised crime, said Commissioner Facundo Rosas.

    Mr Rosas said more than 1,000 others faced disciplinary proceedings and might also be sacked.

    He said none of the officers would be allowed to work in police forces at local, state or federal levels.

    More than 4,500 officers have been sacked since May, said Mr Rosas - many had been charged with crimes.

    Insane. With our porous border, we'll be seeing some of them in no time.
