But it's a disturbingly common scene in dozens of Brit holiday hotspots in Mexico, as organised drug cartels are currently locked in a violent war that is getting more brutal by the day. The ruthless cocaine lord is believed to be even more violent than El Chapo and does not even take mercy of women or children.
In the first half ofthere were a staggering 17, gangland murders - with 94 people being brutally killed every single day. Last year saw a total of 33, making it the bloodiest year on record, but this year is set to be the most violent of all time. And the bloodshed is spilling into affluent tourist hotspots including Mexico City and Cancun, where over half a million Brits holiday every summer. While the latest homicide statistics are horrific, the methods cartels use to keep rivals in check is just as terrifying.
In recent years, large cartels have splintered into smaller factions who then battle for previously shared turf, escalating the violence, and prompting kidnaps and torture. Here, we reveal the backstories and brutal characteristics of the major cartels in Mexico who maintain their grip on the nation with psychopathic ruthlessness. Led by El Mencho, the CJNG has a reputation for unimaginable, extreme violence, starting with the torture and massacre of 35 people in Veracruz in And in the CJNG ambushed and murdered 15 Mexican cops in one of the deadliest attacks on law enforcement in the country.
They're known to have military-grade weapons including rocket-propelled grenades RPGs which they used to shoot down a military helicopter in The bodies of 44 missing people — many of them women - were last month been found buried in a water well in an area of Mexico notorious for brutal drug cartel executions. In August, the CJNG hung another 19 other bodies from bridges — with 10 more dismembered bodies full of bullets found nearby.
As well as the local drug trade, the brutal slayings were said to also be over control of the region's billion-dollar avocado industry. The Sinaloa Cartel is one of the biggest and most powerful drug trafficking cartels in the world - and also the focus of Netflix's Narcos : Mexico. It is an offshoot of the Guadalajara cartel, and they grew to international notoriety in when they kidnapped and murdered undercover DEA agent Kiki Camarena in So over 30 hours, they broke Camarena's skull, jaw, nose, cheekbones and windpipe, injecting him with drugs to make sure he was conscious throughout the torture.
The unprecedented backlash from US police led to the gang breaking up into different groups, with notorious El Chapo "Shorty" and his partner choosing to stay in Sinaloa. But with tensions high, war between the splintered Sinaloa groups immediately kicked off, with El Chapo sending 40 gunmen to a party in Tijuana in where nine people were killed. They've killed women and children, and have been known to rape family members of their rivals and force them to watch. Ina video surfaced showing El Chapo beheading a rival with a chainsaw before cutting the face off the head and stitching it to a football.
With its vast resources, the group has been known to use Boeing s, narco submarines and container ships to move multiple-tonne shipments of cocaine, heroin and fentanyl into North America. But the group is also famous for its drug "super tunnels", huge underground passageways equipped with lifts and electric rail cars dug across the US-Mexico border to move drugs into the States.
Even with El Chapo behind bars for the rest of his life, the Sinaloa Cartel remains one of the most powerful cartels in Mexico. Last year, there were 2, killings in tourist hotspot Tijuana, where the Sinaloa are desperately trying to keep control of the city from other cartels' incursions.November 5, pm Updated November 7, am.
The nine women and children slaughtered in Mexico on Monday were part of a Mormon community with ties to the alleged sex-cult Nxivm.
The filmmaker working with Raniere at the time, Mark Vicente, told the online magazine Slate that the documentary ultimately became a recruiting video for Nxivm, which purported to be a self-help group but morphed into what the feds called a cult that sexually, physically and emotionally abused its mainly female followers.
The film included an interview with Julian LeBaron, who identified himself as the cousin of one of the moms killed Monday and who is a leader of the Mexico Mormon community. The cartel eventually released the abducted man.

Boca Del Rio Massacre — On september 20,gunmen from Los Matazetas working at the time under orders of the Sinaloa Cartel dumped the tortured bodies of 35 men and women along a city highway in Boca Del Rio, Veracruz.
The bodies were left behind along with a narco banner where the Sinaloa Cartel forces took credit for the murder and threatened Los Zetas.

Along with the gory find, the gunmen left a banner signed by El Chapo where he threatened the Nuevo Laredo Mayor and the local police chief for siding with Los Zetas and trying to ignore his presence. A Youtube video shows in gory detail the carnage of the battle.

Women killed in Mexican cartel murders had alleged ties to sex cult Nxivm
The five wounded children were seriously enough injured that Mexican authorities flew them to the border in a military helicopter to receive hospital care in the United States. Three other children who were not wounded are in the care of family members in the tiny hamlet of La Mora in northern Mexico. But what the children went through in the remote, mountainous area of Sonora state is nearly indescribable.
Kendra Miller, a relative, said in an account of the shootings that Devin Blake Langford, 13, was one of the few uninjured young people and quickly took charge, eventually walking about 14 miles back to La Mora for help.
