Mexico Drug War: Narcos accept "papal truce" according to banners hung in Guanajuato

Excelsior: "Yesterday, an alleged organized crime group hung 11 banners in seven municipalities of the state of Guanajuato, accepting the request made by Archbishop Jose Guadalupe Martin Rabago on January  22, when he called upon the criminals to reduce violence during the visit of Pope Benedict XVI to Mexico, which will be held from March 23 to 26.

However, sources with the State Attorney General said that the criminal group conditioned the truce upon its also being accepted by a rival cartel operating in Guanajuato. On January 22, Martin Rabago made his request to members of organized crime: "That they may at least cooperate, allowing all these people to come to a totally respectable event. They won't benefit by doing something that might lead to an experience of grief and death," he said." Spanish original
