Whack-a-mole Drug War: Michoacán: war zone

From Blog del Narco, a first report on the eruption of violence yesterday in Michoacan. This appears to have been provoked, as is typical, by the arrest of a La Familia leader. 

Michoacán: zona de guerra | BlogdelNarco.com: "At approximately 12:00 hours, (Thursday) an unknown group attacked the home of Leonel Godoy, governor of Michoacan. The situation provoked an intense mobilization that managed to catch the criminals, but that fact alone would be the start of a Thursday filled with gunpowder and bloody mess.

During this afternoon
a violent war began in the state of Michoacán. Since about 16:30 pm, members of La Familia Michoacana and The Knights Templar have been involved in raw clashes ....

The places where clashes and blockades occured are Morelia, Patzcuaro, Apatzingan, Uruapan, Zinapécuaro Mugica, Zitácuaro, Lazaro Cardenas, Maravatío, among others. ...

Also reported was the possible capture of a senior leader of the drug cartel La Familia in Michoacan."
