Red alert in Reynosa, a city under siege

Mexico News Daily | Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Residents of the city of Reynosa, Tamaulipas, have been urged to remain in their homes after criminal organizations set off a wave of violence that began last night and triggered a red alert by local officials.

As of early this afternoon the sound of gunfire was still being heard, schools were closing and residents were reporting that vehicles carrying gunmen were circulating freely in some areas of the border city.

Many vehicles were painted with “M42,” a symbol that used to identify Gulf Cartel plaza leader Julián Manuel Loisa Salinas, known as “El Comandante Toro,” who was killed April 22 in a shoot-out with security forces.

Gunfire, blockades and vehicle chases began about 10:00pm yesterday and continued through the night as various criminal cells vying for control of the drug trafficking territory went on the offensive.

2. How does something this violent ever get resolved? Jeez.

Best wishes to the people of Reynosa, hope that somehow the gangs will give them back their town before they all either starve to death, or get murdered on the street trying to get what they need to sustain their own lives.

That this terrorism will be brief....
