There MAY BE VERY 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.

March 2nd marked the 3rd anniversary of Blog del Narco. The originators felt the need to get the truth of the drug war in the streets out to the people, since the truth was not coming from the government.
On Saturday, the newspaper El Siglo de Torreón was evacuated for a received bomb threat. Homes and businesses adjacent were evacuated while searches were conducted using K-9’s. While manning checkpoints and accompanying government leaders, federal agents were attacked, resulting in both uniformed officers and civilians being injured. The Mayor believes the intent was to facilitate attacks on the feds. rather than the newspaper.

The leader of a criminal group responsible for extortion and violent carjackings. He confessed to stealing at least 40 vehicles, some of which have been recovered. The arrest is the result of investigative work by special investigators within the state attorney general’s office.

Gunmen attacked the offices of the attorney general here, killing two federal agents. Videon in Spanish
The former deputy chief of police, Omar Antonio Feregrino, has been arrested for the kidnapping of 3 people. The chief and other involved officers also were arrested. The deputy chief had moved numerous times between 2011 and 2013. The bodies of the 3 kidnapped persons were found a few days later.
On Thursday, federal agents were attacked inside their station, leaving one wounded. This is the fourth attack against federal agents in a weeks time. The attack at the newspaper El Siglo de Torreon left a civilian dead (second item above, although civilian had not died at that point).
Two C-130 aircraft landed here, bringing military reinforcements to provide security here. Soon after, a convoy of 16 military trucks and 5 tanks (although it said tanks, I believe them to be APC’s for securely carrying troops.)
