Mexico has a new president. Like his predecessor Felipe Calderon, Enrique Peña Nieto promised his voters to reduce the drug cartels related violence. While he does not officially take over until December 1, 2012 I’ve just read on a Mexican website that victims of today’s shootout which left ten civilians (one of them woman) and one soldier dead are already clocked in as the first victims of Narco related violence under the new administration.
Red Noticias website reported that the authorities confiscated ten assault rifles – five AK-47s and five R-15s, plus two 3.80 handguns. The victims of the shootout were taken to the forensic institute in Iguala.
Everywhere I look I see attractive specials for vacations in Mexico but there just ain’t no damn way I’m going 😀
