There may be graphic photographs that accompany some articles in the body of this report. It is not our intention to sensationalize. We include these photos in order to give to you, the American public, a clearer understanding of the seriousness of the situation in Mexico and Central America.

Blog Del Narco (http://www.blogdelnarco.com/)

**Asterisk denotes death involving a police officer or a member of the military serving in that capacity.

SAN NICOLAS, NUEVO LEÓN

Two on duty police officers were attacked and gravely wounded. (Another report not from this blog  says the officers died at the hospital but there has been no confirmation yet.)

ALLENDE, NUEVO LEÓN

Another dismembered woman’s body was abandoned with a narco message. It is presumed she is acquainted with two others also found this way since the three were friends.

ALLENDE, NUEVO LEÓN

Fourteen officers with the Municipal Police have been detained for questioning. Authorities were clued to them through a narco message left with a body, saying the police had held the women and released them where they were later kidnapped by a cartel group.

GUADALUPE, NUEVO LEÓN

Municipal police received a report of an abandoned car at some condominiums, where two executed men were found, one decapitated.

AGUASCALIENTES

State police intelligence officers captured Carlos Adán Muñoz Hernández, alias El Michel, who confessed to being the Zetas chief financial boss for the state since January 7 this year. He became the state boss when his predecessor Pablo González Macedo was captured. He was caught in a Meredes Benz he obtained through extortion.

SALTILLO, COAHUILA

Valdemar Quintanilla Soriano, alias El Adal, identified as the Zetas number two financial head was captured by the military. However, they failed to catch his number two, Yáñez José Guadalupe Martínez. aka El Dos.

ACAPULCO, GUERRERO

A man’s body was dumped in the street near a main shopping center. The head was inside a black plastic bag.

TORREON, COAHUILA

During the day Tuesday, the Municipal Police offices were attacked, but the attack was repelled without injury and with property damage only.

ACAPULCO, GUERRERO

A 45 year old man that serviced tourists was gunned down, with it observed by dozens of those tourists. Relatives said they knew of no reason for the execution

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, QUINTANA ROO

Angel Rodolfo Campos, who is head of the Directorate of Public Security, Transit, Fire and Police in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, along with his wife and two young children were attacked in their vehicle. His family was unharmed, and he received a graze to his head and a bullet to the shoulder. He is stable in the hospital (hopefully well guarded), and searching for the attackers was without success. Reports are that he had been threatened recently mainly due to recent arrests of drug dealers operating in tourist areas of the city.

TAMAULIPAS

Shootings are becoming more common and frequent, with narco blockades causing panic among citizenry. In Nuevo Laredo, there was a shootout with the military when armed men in an armored vehicle opened fire. Two gunmen were killed and a soldier wounded. It was unofficially reported one of those killed was Jorge de la Peña, alias El Pompín, the boss for a cartel group in the area. Shortly after, narco blockades appeared which were quickly resolved by authorities. A second incident occurred in Reynosa, where gunmen in 2 vans again engaged in a gun battle with the military, with five bad guys dead and no good guys hurt. Again, narco blockades appeared. (Note: for newer readers, the criminals use the blockades to hinder the authorities pursuing them or responding to certain areas.)

STATE OF MEXICO

The state Attorney General announced the capture of nine Knights Templar members. Among those nine are four municipal police officers from Nicolas Romero.

ALLENDE, NUEVO LEÓN

Residents of this municipality have had a week of horror. On Monday, young women were butchered, followed by one of their friends the next day. Then early Thursday, 2 men were hung from a bridge by an ankle and then shot repeatedly. Later that day, a man was executed at a business, and the employees kidnapped.

CERRALVO, NUEVO LEÓN

(Cerralvo is about half way between Monterrey and the Texas border.) An armed group came to a home and kidnapped two couples and their five children. The oldest, 10 yrs, said that along with their uncles and cousins, they were taken to a ranch where there were 6 other women and five men he did not know. He said they beat his father and another man, and told them to plug their ears and not watch. Hours later, the children were taken in a series of vehicles and dropped in a shopping mall in Apodaca, where a group of soldiers took them to the Municipal Police. (It is unusual that they let the children live and released them.) The report states the photo of the children is being released in hopes of locating some family. There has been no sign of the parents or other family taken.

GUADALUPE, NUEVO LEÓN**

Two men executed on Monday have been identified as Mexican military assigned as escort to Jesus Maria Cantu Cantu, head of public security in Apodaca, NL.
