5000 Missing in Mexico Drug War

5000 Missing in Mexico Drug War

 

Mexico’s government said that about 5000 missing in Mexico drug war have been reported throughout the country where more than 47,000 people have been killed in drug-related violence during the past five years. President Felipe Calder?n started a massive on drug cartels, ordering the military to take action, but during the first nine months of 2011 alone drug-related killing rose by 11 percent year-over-year, a report by the government showed. From January 2011 through September 2011 nearly 13,000 Mexicans lost their lives in drug-related violence, the report said.

Mexico Drug War

The wave of violence hit major cities as Guadalajara that were once considered safe places but with 5000 missing on Mexico drug war no place all over the country can be regarded as safe at present, experts said. There is increasing frustration among Mexicans who believe that the number of drug-related killing is even higher but the government is hiding information on the actual number of violent murders across the country. Initially, the government claimed it is classified information that cannot be released to the public without putting at risk the national security but later a report was revealed, whose figures, however, are disputable, according to independent analysts.

Local experts put the number of drug-related killings at more than 67,000 since a wave of violence hit the country in 2007. The figure is in sharp contrast with government reports that about 47,000 people have been killed in the past five years.

Recently, drug-related killings have been reported in Mexico city, hinting that even the heavily patrolled financial districts of the Mexico’s capital are no longer safe.

In December 2006 President Felipe Calderon ordered the military to engage in a campaign against the local drug cartels, while the drug gangs responded with mass killings in eight of Mexico’s 32 states, with another 5000 missing in Mexico drug war in the process.
