Drug-Related Violence in Acapulco

Thirteen people - five policemen and eight others - were shot and killed in Acapulco; some of the bodies were found decapitated. This recent outbreak of violence in the Mexican resort town is blamed on the rivaling drug cartels in the country.

Of course, being Spring Break season, this is very frightening for many visitors and will mostly likely have a negative effect on tourism in the city.

This is not the first incident of drug-related violence in Acapulco; in June, 18 people were killed.
