Three top Mexican police officials have been shot dead in as many days while the country\'s fight against drug-trafficking continues.

Assailants reportedly sprayed the car of the deputy police chief of the border city of Ciudad Juarez over the weekend, killing Juan Antonio Roman Garcia.

The Head of Mexico City\'s Anti-Kidnap unit was killed on Friday, a day after the Director of National Police Operations against drug traffickers was shot dead.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon said the death of the officers would not deter his efforts to continue his government\'s campaign against drug trafficking cartels.

He said he warned all police personnel to take added precautions while performing their duties.
