Mexico Drug War: Mexico's gangland terror grows in south

Houston Chronicle: "The gangland terror once largely confined to Mexico's northern border states has gained a solid beachhead in the country's impoverished south.

Investigators in the Gulf Coast port of Veracruz were picking through the mortal remains Wednesday of 35 people that gunmen dumped in front of an upscale shopping mall. And on the other side of Mexico's narrow waist, thousands of striking teachers marched through the heart of the faded Pacific beach resort of Acapulco to demand protection from rampaging gangsters.

"The criminal map has shifted," Reynaldo Escobar, Veracruz state's attorney general, told a television interviewer."
