Description

The death toll from the confrontation between Mexico's Federal Police and the New Generation drug cartel in Tanhuato, Michoacan, near the state of Jalisco is now put at 43. Mexican security forces had been engaged in large scale operations against the powerful and ruthless cartel when the ambush occurred. The New Generation cartel, based in Guadalajara, the country's second largest city, is said to have many local politicians, municipal police officials, and military officers in its pay and when it flexes its muscle, as it did this past May 1, the results are deadly.
