Ya Basta de Sangre!: Mexico Murder Reports Reveal Sharp Rise in Killings

We just posted a new count on the murders last year. Here are numbers for the first half of this year.

Mexico Murder Reports Reveal Sharp Rise in Killings: "According to one newspaper account, Mexico is on pace to surpass last year’s record-breaking tally of murders, though the regional distribution of bloodshed is shifting significantly.

As the Trans-Border Institute reports, Reforma, one of Mexico City’s most prominent daily newspapers, counted 7,443 organized crime-related murders between January 1 and July 25, a 20 percent rise from the same period last year."
