6 decapitated bodies located throughout Durango

In various parts of the municipalities of Lerdo and Gómez Palacio the decapitated bodies of six people were discovered. Two of the bodies were identified as those of the 2 missing police officers, José Refugio Olivas Cereceros and Sebastián Moreno Castro of the Dirección de Seguridad Pública Municipal de Gómez Palacio. In Juárez, Chihuahua 3 youths in a car were killed by gunmen while another man was hunted down and shot. Tamaulipas saw 2 traffic police officers killed in two separate attacks.

And, in Taxco, 6 more bodies have been raised from the mine that was used as a mass grave, including the body of recently kidnapped David Bravo Mota who was the director of the Cereso de Iguala Penitentiary.

In the town of Tepic, Nayarit, a gun-battle lasting over 20 minutes between 2 rival gangs left 2 gangsters dead and hundreds of residents traumatized as they fled for cover. The fight occurred over a distance of 5 miles as the two gangs chased each other in the streets. After the battle the fleeing gangsters left behind 5 bullet-ridden SUVs, 4 of which were armoured.

  1. While doing some research on current conflicts, I was shocked to find that the War on Drugs has put Mexico on this map - - as a state in which a major war is taking place. This puts it in the same category as Iraq, Afghanistan, and many of the sub-Saharan nations. It was a horrifying revelation.
