Juarez Protest

Juarez – More than 1,000 people marched through violence-plagued Ciudad Juarez in protest of the daily killings attributed to an ongoing drug cartel war.

Marchers moved toward City Hall beneath a massive Mexican flag Sunday just across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas. They are protesting the lack of security in the sprawling border city besieged by cartel violence for nearly two years.

As many as 4,000 people have been killed in Juarez since January 2008. The city is considered the most dangerous in Mexico, and perhaps the world.
