Mexico City police say 10 people have been trampled to death during a raid on nightclub in the capital.

Police Chief Joel Ortega says three officers and seven youths, two of them minors, were killed.

Ortega says police went to the News Divine club in northeastern Mexico City yesterday to check reports of drugs and alcohol being sold to minors.

He told the Televisa network that the club's owner announced to the crowd of about 1,000 that police were there to arrest them, and a stampede ensued.
