23 Americans missing in Nuevo Laredo

U.S. drug policy continues to spur gangsterism and violence south of the border. There have been hundreds of drug-related murders and kidnappings in Nuevo Laredo in the last few years, more recently including quite a few American victims. See the D'Alliance for the latest.

A commenter yesterday suggested that the abduction and rape of an American by the Ciudad Juarez police might be evidence of police involvement in the hundreds of missing and murdered women in and around Ciudad Juarez over the last several years. It turns out, municipal police in Nuevo Laredo have also been implicated in kidnapping, this time on a large scale.
