Consular offices in N.L. still closed

According to this report, the U.S. will only re-open its consulate in Nuevo Laredo when it is clear that violence in the city is under control. According to the article
En Nuevo Laredo, hasta el pasado 21 de julio habían ocurrido 101 homicidios violentos, superando los registros de 2004, cuando hubo 64 personas asesinadas. En todo el estado de Tamaulipas el número de ejecuciones en 2005 llega ya a 211 víctimas.

This means that murders in N.L. as of July 2005 were nearly double the total for all of 2004.

Officials of the Mexican government called the closing of the consulate an exaggeration.
