At least 30 people died in a staggering surge in drug-related violent crime in Mexico rocking the cities of Monterrey and Guadalajara, and the northern state of Chihuahua, police said Saturday.
The attacks were the latest deadly violence gripping Mexico’s war on drugs, as the country’s various criminal cartels struggle over turf and the government uses police and soldiers in an attempt to crush them.
In Chihuahua state, 11 people were slain in several separate murders in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico’s deadliest city, across from the US city of El Paso, Texas between late Friday and Saturday, authorities said.
