Seven injured in latest Nuevo Laredo car bombing

| Private Reply
The US news media covered yesterday's tragedy in Nuevo Laredo and initially it seemed to me like just one more regrettable instance of similar events in the border city. Then I saw the pictures...do expats still expound the supposedly common wisdom that only those involved with the drug war are likely to suffer violence? What did that man and poor abuelitas do other than go about their daily business downtown? Americans are rightfully concerned about Syria but should pay more attention to what is happening to its closest neighbor.
