Mexico: Drug dealers start a bloody year

Latin America, Mexico, Mafia and Drugs, Agencies /In the Mexican state of Chihuahua, bordering the United States, 31 people were killed in two days, including four women and three teenagers aged 14, 15 and 17.

The Mexican region is reconciling accounts between rival groups of drug traffickers belonging to the Juarez cartel and Sinaloa.

The states of Chihuahua, Sinaloa and Durango form the so-called Golden Triangle, areas that drug cartels are fighting for as they include areas for the cultivation of marijuana and opium, and also a smuggling route to the United States.

Shortly before the wave of assassinations, Governor Javier Corral said at a security meeting that 2018 would be the "Year of Public Security in Chihuahua."

According to statistics from the Federal Ministry of the Interior, the number of murders in Mexico between January and November 2017 to 23 thousand and 101 murders, the highest number since 1997 when the authorities began to count these crimes.

Since former President Felipe Calderon (2006-2012) launched his war on drug traffickers with the help of the military, violence has increased considerably in Mexico.
