HRW slams Mexico

Human Rights Watch charged that Mexican security forces were not properly investigated over at least 249 "disappearances" that occurred during President Felipe Calderon's government.

"Mexico's Disappeared: the Enduring Cost of a Crisis Ignored," said the people went missing during the Calderon administration, which lasted from 2006 until late last year, and are presumed dead. The former leader sent in thousands of federal security troops in a bid to crush the country's warring and brutal drug cartels, in a campaign that left tens of thousands of innocent civilians dead in the crossfire.AFP
