This morning armed men entered the police station in our city and gunned down 3 police officers. The gunmen then managed to get away but army troops moved in and cordoned off a huge section of town and are searching house by house. Please pray for the government's efforts to curb the organized crime violence.

We are safe! Do not worry about us - like I said in the post, we feel safer with the army presence. We'll keep you posted on what's going on.


Yesterday the U.S. State dept issued this advisory for Mexico:

"Narcotics-Related Violence - U.S. citizens residing and traveling in Mexico should exercise caution when in unfamiliar areas and be aware of their surroundings at all times. Violence by criminal elements affects many parts of the country, urban and rural, including border areas. In recent months there have been execution-style murders of Mexican officials in Tamaulipas (particularly Nuevo Laredo), Michoacan, Baja California, Guerrero (particularly Acapulco), Nuevo Leon (especially in and around Monterrey) and other states. Though there is no evidence that U.S. citizens are specifically targeted, Mexican and foreign bystanders have been injured or killed in some violent attacks demonstrating the heightened risk in public places. In its effort to combat violence, the Government of Mexico has deployed military troops in various parts of the country. U.S. citizens are advised to cooperate with official checkpoints when traveling on Mexican highways."
