Veracruz security beef up yielding poor results -- yet another eight bodies dumped
On October 20 a high ranking Mexican naval official claimed that violent crime in and around the city had already dropped 70% due to security enhancements known as Operation Secure Veracruz. Somebody should tell the cartels in the area (Los Zetas and their archenemies, Los Matazetas), because they're obviously conducting business as usual. Here's that military report from two weeks ago: http://mexicogulfreporter.blogspot.com/2011/10/vicente-fox-lets-make-deal-proposal.html.
Here's the original September 20 body dumping report: http://mexicogulfreporter.blogspot.com/2011/09/horror-on-veracruz-street-35-bodies.html.
And yet another 36 bodies were discovered in Veracruz on October 6: http://mexicogulfreporter.blogspot.com/2011/10/bulletin-32-bodies-found-in-three.html.
