I’m going to try to make a link list about the Mexican drug war a recurring feature…
1. The Washington Post reports that at least 11 mayors across Mexico have been killed so far this year.
2. Over 100 police officers in Ciudad Juárez alone have been killed this year.
3. The New York Times reports on the proliferation of drug smuggling tunnels between the two cities of Nogales in Mexico and Arizona. “There is a joke in Nogales that someday its entire downtown will collapse into a giant sinkhole due to the many drug tunnels in the city.”
4. If Californians approve Prop 19 in November, it would open the door for Mexico to consider a more liberal drug strategy, writes McClatchy’s Mexico City bureau chief.
