Mexico Drug-Related Killings Were 1,091 in May, Milenio Says

June 01, 2012

Killings related to drug violence in Mexico rose 9.2 percent in May from the month before, newspaper Milenio reported today.

Last month’s death toll of 1,091 pushed the number of killings since President Felipe Calderon took office in December 2006 to 52,173, according to the Mexico City-based newspaper.

During the first five months of this year, 5,228 people were killed in incidents related to drug violence, Milenio said.
