Local violence in Mexico

Via Aguachile: local level violence in Mexico is increasingly a deadly problem, affecting 52% of municipalities (1,269 of them). In nine states, 90% or more of municipalities had deaths related to "la narcoguerra."

Even more depressing is that in 2011, 122 municipalities went from zero executions in 2010 total to a combined 241. Those were concentrated in Veracruz, Oaxaca, Puebla, Jalisco, and San Luis Potosí, meaning the center of the country is now getting hit harder.
