Mexico prepares for massive drug war, death toll could rise
At least three people have been killed and dozens injured after police clashed at a march in the north of Mexico, state prosecutors said on Wednesday.
They are all suspected of drug trafficking and could be tried for murder.
“At least one officer was killed and about 20 others were wounded when they tried to stop a march to stop the drug traffickers from gathering to disrupt a funeral that was planned at a cemetery in the northeastern state of Guanajuato,” prosecutors said.
Officials in Mexico’s western border state of Oaxaca released video purportedly showing riot police violently shooti바카라사이트ng at them in the capital Oaxaca.
Earlier, Mexico’s interior minister said three people, two of them young men, were killed and about 30 injured in two separate clashes after a march to protest against corruption in Oaxaca.
“They tried to attack us in two separate attacks. The first o더킹카지노ne was a man and the second one was an 18-year-old with a gunshot wound,” Miguel Angel Soto said, according to the newspaper La Nación.
On Tuesday, a total of 11 peo우리카지노ple were killed and more than 130 injured as the military launched a massive war against drug gangs in what Mexico’s President Felipe Calderon said was part of a war on the cartels.
Mexico’s president and first lady visited Mexico City in a bid to show Mexico’s public that they believe in the death penalty for drug kingpins, and they are expected to hold a “war on drugs” forum later this week.
There have been clashes between police and drug gangs across the country but violence in Mexico’s drug war has been particularly fierce. In October and November 2014, at least 42 people died as drug gangs set up checkpoints, fired gunshots at soldiers and set up mines.
