The Wall Street Journal, 6/14/2012
Mexico’s drug-related murders fell about 12% during the first five months of this year, President Felipe Calderón said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal this week. That marks the first decline in violence in at least eight years.
“Our strategy is in place, it is working. Violence is coming down, although we obviously can’t claim victory yet,” said Mr. Calderón, who is constitutionally barred from re-election.
