More drug violence in Mexico

This time not just along the border. Another police official was gunned down with an AK-47 (a.k.a. cuerno de chivo) outside a restaurant in Acapulco in the company of 5 friends. In border states, another four were killed.

Meanwhile, back in the Capital, opposition legislators criticized the government's characterization as "exagerated" the closing of the U.S. consulate in N.L. They admit the country is sufferng from "narcoviolencia".

The leftist press points out that new security measures have not been as effective as the government would claim.
