South of the Border

The corpses of a young man and woman, dangling from a pedestrian walkway in the city of Nuevo Laredo near the US border, showed signs of torture and were badly mutilated, an official at the state prosecutor's office said on Tuesday.

"Watch out, I've got my eye on you," the placard said, according to photos from the scene, warning that the same would happen to all "scandal mongers" on the internet.


Quoting police investigators, Al Jazeera’s Frank Contreras, reporting from Mexico City, said: "The two victims were not journalists but people from the local community. They were using social media to denounce crimes.


When do we send in troops to protect the citizens of Mexico?
