Mexico Drug Violence Claims Staggering Toll

Mexican media estimates suggest that more than 30 people were killed every day, on average, in 2011 due to drug violence in the country.

Felipe Calderon, the Mexican president, is to complete his six-year term this year,

and the issue of crime will be high on the agenda for the 2012 presidential poll. According to local media's figures, around 50,000 people have been killed since the start of Calderon's crackdown on drug gangs in 2006.

Al Jazeera's Stephanie Dekker reports.

  2. Nice. Council Of The Americas wants to help. Buck fifty an hour jobs will save the day. Thanks. Jesus, Buggs.

  3. It's not staggering enough! There needs to be a LOT more killing. Try 500,000!
