Mexico Drug War: Activists seek international charges against Mexico's president

latimes.com: "A group of human-rights activists and journalists says it will attempt to seek charges at the International Criminal Court against President Felipe Calderon, members of his cabinet and Mexico's most-wanted cartel leader for soaring deaths and widespread abuses in the country's drug war.

The legal scholars, journalists and academics who are preparing the case said Tuesday that the government's strategy against powerful organized crime groups routinely violates the rights of citizens and must be addressed in an international forum."
