Nov 9th 2011 7:21PM I also have never felt unsafe on my trips down to Mazatlán in the past. Today is different. People are getting killed weekly by the cartels at this point in time. On Nov 8th Mazatlán's Mayor Alejandro Higuera and the truck carrying his bodyguards were attacked by gunmen on the north/south lane of the Mazatlán-Culiacán autopista at night. No one was reported injured. The article is a nice PR piece that is all. The killing by the cartels are happening all over the country.
