Acapulco, Mexico: Two Mexican soccer players were killed in a gun attack against their team bus in a spasm of violence that left four others dead in troubled Guerrero state, officials said on Saturday.

The bus of third division club Chilpancingo Hornets was looking for a spot to park in the restive town of Iguala late on Friday when unidentified gunmen opened fire, state prosecutors said.

Some team members were wounded in the shooting, including the manager, who was out of danger. Authorities retracted earlier reports that the driver had been killed.
