• The Hals Report
Two young victims of the drug war have been found hanging from a bridge in Mexico. The victims were found with signs hanging from their necks warning social media users, bloggers and websites to stop reporting violence linked to the cartels. Along with politicians and law enforcement, journalists and now social media users are under attack for covering incidents involving Mexico’s drug cartels.
The corpses were found dangling over a pedestrian walkway in the town of Nuevo Laredo near the US border. The bodies showed signs of struggle and torture, an official from the state prosecutor’s office said.
The signs had a signature on them, a “Z”, a reference to a notorious drug gang in the area called the Zetas. The Zetas are the former paramilitary-wing of the Gulf Cartel. The victims have not been identified thus far, but sources say they were between the ages of 20 and 25.
