Yet another example of drug land violence has been reported from the town of Nuevo Laredo in the Mexican border – 23 deaths in a single day. This has been reported in the Telegraph dated 4th of May 2012.

Out of these 23, there were 14 headless bodies kept inside an icebox in a van and another 9 were hanging from a bridge. Four of these 9 were women and the remaining were men.

The war between the drug lords of Mexico and the police have been raging for the last 5 ½ years and nearly 50,000 persons have lost their lives because of the rivalry between the warring factions of the drug gang Zeta and Gulf cartels.

Nuevo Laredo is the main trade route between Mexico and the US and is witness to regular disputes which end in death.

The police are apparently ineffective and are unable to put an end to this violence because drugs are a multi-million dollar empire and those who control it know how best to use money to stay afloat.
