Narco Banners announce Curfew in Comarca Lagunera
Narco Banners appeared on monuments and throughout the principal avenues of the Comarca Lagunera region on Tuesday advising citizens of a 9:00 pm curfew.
The banners, which were signed by a criminal group calling themselves "El Poniente", appeared around 8:00 am and were removed by authorities almost two hours later.
The URGENT NOTICES were addressed to the general public, especially those in the Eastern sectors, warning them to respect the 9:00 pm curfew as they will be cleaning the area of anyone, including police, collaborating with the Zetas.
"El Poninete" ended their warning by stating they are disputing territory and stressing the importance of the curfew, stating they did not want innocent victims.
Durango and Coahuila State authorities confirmed the appearance of the banners and additionally informed of recent executions in Gomez Palacio and Torreon.
