Mexican President Responds to Embassy Attack
In a speech made the day after the attack on the US Embassy in Mexico City, President Manuel Moreno has issued an official statement condemning the attack.

Moreno said that while proper investigation was still on-going, and further evidence was needed, the Cartels are at the top of the list of suspects. "The government has begun to take steps to remove the corruption from Mexico," Moreno's statement ran. "While no hard evidence has yet to be found, the timing is fortuitous and looks like an act of desperation."

The President has taken swift and decisive action, stating that he would go to whatever lengths necessary to ensure the safety of both the Mexican people and Mexico's allies. The military had issued an indefinite lockdown on the Mexico City subject to a 8pm curfew. All entries and exits from the city have been installed with military checkpoints and currently no-one is being allowed in or out of the city.

President Moreno was open about his high profile guest, dismissing Mr. Oakland's possible involvement in the attack. "Mr. Oakland is working with the support of the Mexican government and people. Inspectors have questioned him and it can be confirmed that he has a solid alibi. We will of course investigate Mr. Oakland further, but we are confident Mr. Oakland has no involvement in these attacks."

Contrary to President Moreno's claims, Mr. Oakland has issued a formal apology made by Gamez Estande on his behalf. In the apology Mr. Oakland expresses his deepest regret that someone had used his past in an attempt to incite further violence. He has also stated that he would compensate the families of those who were caught in the attack himself.

It has been revealed that Mr. Oakland is suspected to be a former inmate at San Quentin Penitentiary sentenced to death for the murder of a Senator.

The US have yet to make a formal statement but President Moreno has stated he would be talking to US dignitaries as soon as possible and hoped the matter would be swiftly resolved and peace restored to Mexico.
