CHILPANCINGO, Gro. (apro).--The mayors of Apaxtla de Castrejon and Teloloapan, Efrain Pena Damasio and Ignacio Valladares Salgado, respectively, ordered local government offices to close and the suspension of classes in both municipalities, due to an incursion of armed groups that "laid siege" to the area yesterday.

"We all locked ourselves in our homes and are still uncertain," said the PRD party member Pena Damasio, after a group of 80 armed men "took" the county seat and spread terror for more than three hours.

The mayors called on the state and federal governments to take care of the serious violence and insecurity situation that is exists in this northern area because local authorities cannot control criminal activities.

They explained that of the 100 officers that made up the police force in Teloloapan, currently 30  remain active because 25 "decided to resign as a group" last week and the rest have been murdered or have been injured in several ambushes.

In Apaxtla the situation is even more critical because there are only nine police officers.

In separate interviews, the mayors demanded that the situation be dealt with "urgently" in the area -- considered an important zone for production and transportation of drugs--, and they asked Governor Angel Aguirre Rivero, who is scheduled to visit Teloloapan on Wednesday, the 22nd, to make police and military patrols permanent.

Security, they add, should not be increased only when the governor comes to this convulsive area which has collapsed due to crime.

Pena Damasio lamented that he has asked several times for soldiers to be placed permanently in Apaxtla, but, he said, state and federal governments have shown themselves to be indifferent to the violence and insecurity.

This government indolence was evidenced yesterday when approximately 80 armed men virtually laid siege to the county seat beginning at 10:00 a.m. and for more than three hours drove around on the town's streets, where they murdered six young men and set fire to six pickups, according to the PRD mayor.

Initially, ministerial authorities who initiated criminal investigation file No. ALD/SC/03/0121/2013 reported five victims: Tomas Cervantes Gomez, 40 years old; Salvador Jaimes Avila and Raymundo Sanchez Espinoza, both 18; Luis Sanchez Espinoza, 20 years old , and one more who has not yet been identified.

However, Pena Damasio made it clear to Apro that there were six persons murdered yesterday. The sixth one, he added, was found this morning.

He also mentioned that Saturday, the 18th, there were reports of a confrontation in the vicinity of the town of Cacalotepec, which left an indeterminate number of dead.

"We don't know why no authority went to that place, but there's talk there were several men murdered," he said.

He pointed out that during yesterday's violent incidents, he decided "to lock myself inside my house", like the rest of the residents, while the group was breaking into homes and murdering people at will.

The mayor stated that the military got to Apaxtla around 2:00 p.m., when the group of gunmen had already left town, despite the fact that he reported the incident very early.

When asked what was the reason for the military authorities' delay, he answered: "I don't know what happened. There's a lot of uncertainty among the residents and very little attention by the authorities, that's why today we had to suspend work in government offices."

we are a clandestine group dedicated to arming and training the civil population in Mexico so that they are able to better protect themselves against the brutality of the criminals, the police, the military, and the government. we need brave men and women (preferably ex-military) to help train in tactics, defense, patrolling, and marksmanship.

according to other news there is a military fort in the town of Apaxtla or so I read, so what is the explanation for such a tardy delay of military presence? or is all authority in general on the payroll of organized crime?(police on all levels, local and federal now military)the state governor and municipal mayors are well known paid to look away while the local druglords operate at will. And yet the president of Mexico does absolutely nothing when obviously the situation is getting out of hand with these neighbor states (Michoacan & Guerrero)...well there are too many red lights already lit throughout Mexico but the govt. rather than deal with the problem is busier covering that window with a thick curtain. The fate that is soon to engulf Mexico is rather grim...

The bible specifically states that their will be signs that will indicate the 2nd coming f Jesús Christi. The signs have never been any clearer that now. The European Unión and its supercomputer the Beast is a major sign.

Mexico is just going to shit now! The people that live in these citys and towns are just innocent bystanders caught up in the violence of these asshole who use terror tactics on the people. The president and mexicos government are full of shit and are cowards for letting this happen! Mexico use to be a nice place to visit and have a nice vacation.....now its worthless to go there with yyour family because of these assholes who just kill without even thinking about wheather the person is an innocent bystander. That's the difference between a real man and a fucken mexican asshole who thinks he is a big shot because he has a gun and has killed a lot of people while they are tied up. But take the gun away and let him stand up face to face to a real man I bet you anything he will get shit beat out him.....
