The French intervention in Mexico (Spanish: Segunda Intervención Francesa en México ), also known as the Maximilian Affair, War of the French Intervention, and the Franco- Mexican War, was an invasion of Mexico by the Second French Empire, supported in the beginning by Great Britain and Spain.

Mexican authorities have carried out a series of raids while investigating the attempted assassination of Mexico City's police chief, according to local media. It also comes shortly after the murder of a federal judge, Uriel Villegas Ortiz, and his wife, Verónica Barajas, earlier this month.
