Mexican marines rescue 104 kidnapped migrants in Nuevo Laredo

Five alleged kidnappers detained by Tamaulipas state cops

A total of 104 kidnap victims were rescued by a Mexican Naval infantry unit in Nuevo Laredo Sunday, according to Mexican news accounts.

According to a news account which appeared on the website of El Diario de Coahuila news daily, the military unit had been dispatched to a residence in 150 Aniversario colony in Nuevo Laredo where marines found the victims, 91 men and 13 women.  A total of 102 victims were from Honduras while two originated from El Salvador.

Meanwhile, a raid in Nuevo Laredo netted a total of five alleged kidnappers.

According to an account which appeared in a separate item on the website of El Diario de Coahuila,  the raid came after investigations began following an armed confrontation between armed suspects in Nuevo Laredo March 7th.  The gunfight involved Tamaulipas state Policia Ministerial, Policia Estatal Acreditable and Mexican Army units.

According to the report, the gang was responsible for at least 60 murders, as well as robberies and other violent crimes.

The detainees were identified as Fernando Araujo Flores, Carlos Aguilera Romano, Raul Murillo Fraga, Adriana Yacare del Toro Lopez, and José Juan Antonio Carvajal.

It is worth noting that  José Juan Antonio Carvajal and Adriana Yacare del Toro Lopez died in the Nuevo Laredo Centro de Ejecuciones de Sancciones (CEDES) only a day after entering the prison.  Antonio Carvajal was stabbed to death in a prison brawl while  Toro Lopez was found hanged in her cell.

    Walked cross the bridge to Nuevo Laredo early evening saturday 2. March. Had a few beers at the Montera Bar i Hidalgo street. Had dinner in a restaurant. Went to a few other bars in the area around midnight and back to Montera. Joking a lot with the bartender. Tiped him well. Spend time with a girl. The bar was completely full. Only a few "pale faces" like me. Police/army controlled the bar as they several times passed the bar in their pick-ups. Went back to US around 2 pm. Did kind of the same things in Matamoros 2 days after. First time in Mexico. Did I put my self in a dangerous situation by doing that?
