Editor: Armed men attack Mexican newspaper office

Armed men burst into a newspaper office in eastern Mexico Sunday, warning staff before they set fire to the building, the newspaper's editor said.

No one was injured in the ensuing blaze, which damaged the inside and outside of El Bueno Tono ("The Good Tone") newspaper in Cordoba, Veracruz, editor Julio Fentanes told CNNMexico.

"They broke windows outside and inside the building," he said. "They came armed with all kinds of weapons, with pipes, with any number of things."

Workers hid in the back of the building during the early-morning incident, he said.

Veracruz state government spokesmen said a container with 10 liters of gasoline was found at the scene.
