Suspected drug cartel gunmen have hurled grenades, burned vehicles and blocked streets in Mexico's
second-largest city, Guadalajara.

The interior secretary of Jalisco state says the attacks appear
to have been coordinated, and blames them on drug gangs.

Assailants burned public transport vehicles to blocks streets
and hurled grenades at a police station and vehicles.

Fernando Guzman Perez said Wednesday that arrests followed the
Tuesday night attacks that wounded a policeman and two transport
workers.

Other attacks took place in the northwestern city of Zacatecas
and the northern city of Monterrey, resulting in several deaths.
Those attacks did not appear to be coordinated.
