HUMAN TRAFFICKING / 1 NOV 2010 BY INSIGHT CRIME EN
Authorities reported several more kidnappings of migrants in Mexico, including a case in Tijuana where 17 migrants continue missing, La Hora newspaper reports. Other cases stretched from Cuncún to the border with Guatemala. Ten thousand immigrants were kidnapped and held for ransom between September 2008 and February 2009, according to Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission. This includes 72 people from parts of Central and South America that were kidnapped and killed by the criminal group known as the Zetas in Tamaulipas province along the Texas border last week.
