Mexico to send troops to stem violence after record 25,000 murders
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexican officials said on Sunday the government was set to unleash a new wave of troops to crack down on criminal groups in regions where a surge in violence led to more than 25,000 murders last year.
National Security Commissioner Renato Sales said federal police troops will work with local officials to round up known major criminals and bolster investigations.
The aim was “to recover peace and calm for all Mexicans,” he said. He did not provide details on the number of federal police to be deployed.
