Mex Death Rates (Current Affairs)

 

“The tally for all homicides, as of Nov. 17, reached 2,824 so far this year in Ciudad Juarez and more than 10,000 since violence really surged in late 2006 when President Felipe Calderon came to office and deployed the army along the border.

Compare Ciudad Juarez with another major city making news these days – Karachi, Pakistan. Check out stories here and here about mayhem in Karachi, which has some 18 million people. So far this year, the murders there total 1,350 or so. Population figures for Ciudad Juarez are sketchy but it has no more than 1.3 million people. Proportionally, Juarez is far more dangerous than Karachi.”   McClatchy Blog re Mejico
