In a statement, the Ministry of National Defense announced that the capture of this guy, who worked for Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera, was a result of intelligence work , allowing his arrest without a firing a shot, and seizing a long gun, various communication equipment and a vehicle. This drug dealer at the time of his arrest, confessed to working directly for Jesus Alfredo Salazar Ramírez, known as “The Snowman”, and a lieutenant “El Chapo” Guzman, who controls the drug trade in the state of Sonora. According to intelligence, this drug dealer is involved in the kidnapping of 2 policemen in the municipality of El Saric, Sonora and their subsequent murder in 2010, and whose skeletal remains were located on March 31, 2011. He is also presumed to be responsible for the murder of Aaron Canastillo Ivan Villanueva, a member of the band “The Alazanes of Sonora” on August 31, 2008.

Protests Paralyze Bolivian Cities
LA PAZ, BOLIVIA – Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets again on Thursday, plunging into chaos La Paz and other cities in Bolivia to demand better wages. Public transport was not circulating in much of the city due to blockade of protesters in corners, avenues and streets that detonated firecrackers and small charges of dynamite. In other cities also had protests and roadblocks. The demonstrations were centered in La Paz, but police repelled demonstrators who harassed President Evo Morales in the southern city of Tarija. The police avoided acting in La Paz. Six policemen were injured in clashes with protesters, said the government. The demonstrations were called ten days ago by the Central Obrera Boliviana (a union), and a former ally of the government, and are being carried out by rural teachers, miners and employees of state insurance. Protesters are demanding a wage increase greater than 10% proposed by the government.
Economy Minister Luis Arce said that a further increase in fiscal deficit soar from 4.2% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) seen for this year. Many of the employees are civil servants. He noted that a further increase will cause the closure of businesses. The miners’ leader, Cesar Lugo, said that ”we are fighting for the revival of” productive employment. Discontent has been rising since the end of the year, caused by rising food prices. Morales decreed in December a fuel adjustment, but had to repeal the measure due to street protests.
The missed increase, and other elevated prices, along with unrest has diminished the popularity of the president. A radio station survey published Thursday by the newspaper revealed that about 72% of respondents, and 63% of the neighboring city of El Alto, reject a third term for Morales in 2015, when the next elections are.
