Mexico's 'New Generation' cartel takes police head-on

Bullet holes scar the window of a neighbouring house to that where gunmen attacked the police in in OcotlanThe town still bears the scars from the unprecedented offensive launched by a powerful Mexican drug cartel against government forces: bullet-pocked buildings and blood stains on the street. The March 19 ambush that killed five federal gendarmerie officers, three gang suspects and three bystanders in Ocotlan signaled the start of a conflict between the authorities and the Jalisco New Generation Drug Cartel. The well-armed gang took its operation to a new level on April 6 when it surprised a Jalisco state police convoy, gunning down 15 officers in the deadliest single day for Mexico’s security forces in years of a bloody drug war. The western state of Jalisco is known as the birthplace of tequila, mariachis and the country’s most popular football team, the Chivas of Guadalajara.
