22:07 |

The most violent area was the north-western state of Sinaloa, where 43 deaths
were reported. In Chihuahua, 40 people were killed over the past week, the daily La Jornada reported. In Sinaloa’s capital, Culiacan, teachers, students and university employees, dressed in white, protested the increasing violence yesterday. They placed white carnations on a symbolic tomb and held 10 minutes’ silencefor the more than 500 people who have been killed in the state this year. In the tourist town of Mazatlan on Saturday, a group of men fleeing the police after allegedly killing a senior police official, took 40 people hostage at a restaurant in a shopping mall. Mexico has recorded more than 2,000 slayings this year amid turf wars
between narcotics trafficking cartels. The centre-right federal government in Mexico City hasdeclared war on the drugcartels, sending the federal law enforcement and the Mexican Army to bolster local police in some regions.
