A new explosion was reported on Monday September 5, 2016 outside a local business in the center of San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato. A month ago, another explosion was reported inside a local bar, El Sotano where an explosive device was placed in a backpack. During that incident, the explosive device was left on a stage and one person was injured as a result. On the latest explosion in the center of San Miguel, the investigative authorities confirmed that they located evidence of an explosive substance

MEXICO CITY/ SAN MIGUEL DE ALLENDE- Authorities confirmed an explosion in the early hours of Monday September, 5, 2016 outside a local business in the center of San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato. The attack with explosives took place between two bars, El Limerick and El Adelitas. So far in September, there have been at least 3 other attacks with explosives in different cities of Guanajuato. Exactly a month ago, another attack with explosives took place in San Miguel de Allende inside El Sotano bar. During that incident, an explosive device inside a backpack was detonated on the stage where the music band was playing. Property was extensively damaged and one person was injured as a result of that explosion.

San Miguel de Allende is an important tourist hub in Guanjato and Mexico in general. Additionally, it is the home of thousands of foreign citizens that decided to move to this picturesque town due to its tranquility, good weather, and excellent services. September is a month in which San Miguel de Allende fills up with tourists (Mexican and foreign) due to the independence festivities. This community which lived in peace for many years is also the destination for many retired Mexicans.

The result of this latest attack is five people injured; two with serious injuries (chest, arms, and legs) and two with hearing problems, dizziness, and a woman that suffered a panic attack. Additionally, at least 15 businesses suffered damages as well as three vehicles that were parked outside on Canal, Umaran and Zacateros streets. The investigative agency reported that the explosion was caused by an unknown device with an explosive substance. There was clear evidence of the device and unknown substance outside the business where the explosion took place. As of now, investigators believe that the explosive device is homemade and that it contained explosives inside a container or bag. Specialized investigators performed chemical tests to determine exactly what caused the explosion.

Witnesses said that approximately at 2:00AM they heard a loud explosion followed by a cloud of smoke that was visible in the sky. They also reported seeing broken glass throughout the streets of Umaran and Zacateros, they also added that the door to the business was destroyed as well as damaged vehicles on the street. Civil Protection Units along with firefighters responded to the scene after the explosion.   

Another attack with explosives was perpetrated on Friday, September 2, 2015 near a beer depot in Abasalo, Guanajuato and three days prior, an additional two explosive attacks were committed outside businesses also in Abasolo. The attacks took place outside Tortilleria Fuentes and Don Poncho convenience store. The tortilleria is located on Bugambilias steet while the convenience store is located at the corner of this same street with Margaritas street in the Margaritas neighborhood. Right across from these two businesses is where the construction of government office is taking place. Per witnesses, unknown subjects in a Chevy vehicle drove by incident location and threw out the explosive devices. According to the preliminary investigations by the Military, it is believed that the subjects used Molotov cocktails.

Guanajuato state recorded 95 murders in the month of August which brings the annual murders to 625 in the state. The most violent deaths have taken place during the past four months (354 murders in those 4 months). At least, 10 of those deaths took place in Penjamo and Acambaro 4 days prior to the implementation of the Mando Unico Regional Police (single command) in that area headed by General Felipe Gurrola Martinez. Despite the multiple murders in the state, General Gurola Martinez has denied to the media that there is a dominant cartel in Guanajuato and added that the violence is only due to small cells. 

Days after the discovery of 10 bodies, Guanajuato State Attorney, Carlos Zamarripa Aguirre assured that at least four of the victims were from Michoacan and that their bodies were only dropped in Penjamo; possibly due to the lack of police presence in that area. Additionally, he assured that Guanajuato’s government would increase security in the area and would work with the authorities in Michoacan to prevent these types of incidents from happening. Despite this, September has started with death and tragic discoveries in Penjamo. A man and a woman were found in the truck of a vehicle after police responded to a call regarding an abandoned vehicle on a state road near the communities of Tacabaya and El Huizache.

The two bodies were in the trunk of a Cadillac vehicle bearing Michoacan tags. Although the man did not show any obvious gunshot wounds, his hands and feet were tied. The woman had several gunshot wounds about the torso and had been dead between six and eight hours when they were found. A day after (Friday September 2, 2016) two more bodies were found in that same region. One of the bodies was found in a field in the community of Novilleros while the second was found in a house in the community of Padrera de Gala; both in Abasolo and both bodies showed signs of decomposition.

  12. Sounds like they might be trying to extort the business's there.Ppl not used to this would say no.I will bet some are foreign owned and they are not into that.It disgusts them.As I was reading the article I thought it might be young teens trying to have fun but when it was mentioned thrown from a moving truck then I knew this was adults probably gang related.The Mayor better clean it up or hey another small Acapulco on the way or the many foreigners there are going to be like the birds and flock off.

  13. One thing that really upsets me is the global lack of interest in Mexico. Whether people want to believe it or not, terrorism is south of the border. Narco-terrorism is in itself just terrorism with a different name to help comfort themselves to believe it is just among cartels not innocents. ISIS and cartels have many similarities, they both behead people to send a message, they display their bodies to reiterate their message. They both use bombs with little regard for human life. They both have child soldiers, both kidnap women as they do choose and both have created many refugees leaving the violence except the refugees that come here we call them illegals and send them back to the violence. I can go on and point out more similarities but you get the picture, we invade other countries to kill terrorists but you will never see the US sending troops south of the border. We will continue to send money to fight this so called war on drugs but we all know it lines the pockets of the crooked politicians and some goes to actually do some good, if you can even call it that. There is a political atmosphere that corruption is just business as usual, and the judicial system, why even go into that since everyone with common sense knows it's a joke. The president of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte seems to be the only world leader acknowledging this issue by dealing fire with fire since taking office in June. His hard stance on drugs and crime is very frightening to criminals to say the least. Criminals don't run shit there, the days of corruption and endangering the community is slowly decreasing. This is what mexico needs and the US for that matter as well. Yes each worthless piece of shit is someone's father, son, grandfather, husband and the same goes for the women. However, jail, counseling and treatment will only do so much. Example: some of the terrorists that left the Guantanamo Bay prison returned back to terrorism. The autodefensas had the right idea but poor execution as the government is aligned with the Narco-terrorist instead of its citizens. I don't condone violence nor do i promote it but you have to see things for what they are, as they say in Mexico "muerto el perro acaba la rabia."

    1. Narcos are added to terrorism all over the world, or islamofascistas, because that looks good on paper...
      how would it look if people started calling it state sponsored terrorism sponsored by the US corporate welfare queens and war profiteers, the world Bank and the international monetary fund?
      It would look and sound ugly, because it is the ugly truth...

  17. Check out his fB page for pretty good updates. https://www.facebook.com/NoticiasConValorSMA/?fref=ts Fortunatley there was no bomb for the Grito and there was a lot of people but most families stayed away. A couple of days ago a guy who had a microbus selling tacos for maybe 20 years had his bus set on fire. They supposably try to extort him for money and he said no. San Miguel never expected this but it should no be suprising, Celaya está de la chingadísim only 20 minutes from San Mickey.

  19. It would appear that the government is only paying lip service to its war on drugs. they have moved the weight from sinaloa to jalisco/michohocan. Wel money talks and here it is in a big way. The gov could solve the problem, they just have to use the weight that they are in possession of. As for the human rights angle..... well the cartel does not have any respect for that!!! only if they get caught...NO the only answer is the full force of the armed forces. No quarter
