Officials say three policemen have been killed in a shootout at Mexico City's main airport.

The security ministry said the federal officers had been sent to detain suspects in a drug trafficking case.

Passengers dived for cover when the suspects opened fire, killing two officers immediately and injuring a third who later died in hospital.

The area was sealed off but flights were reported to be operating normally in and out of the airport.
